Album Review

Bluegrass banjo and slide guitar master Tony Furtado's 1997 album Roll My Blues Away is another remarkable set of performances. It features outstanding acoustic instrumentals, from "The Stark Raven" to the laid-back "Crow Canyon." Furtado, a Grand National Banjo Championship winner, offers ten original compositions on this release, as well as vocal arrangements of two traditional songs, "Willow Tree" and "Boat's Up the River."

Highly recommended for everyone who likes acoustic banjo, slide guitar, and progressive bluegrass.
