Multi-instrumentalist and two-time national banjo champion Tony Furtado will be at the State Theatre July 14. 
“Furtado combines elements of folk, blues, bluegrass, rock, and more into a potent Americana musical blend that explores our shared musical frontiers and traditions with fearless creativity,” a press release from the State said.
Furtado has recorded nearly 20 critically acclaimed albums since 1990. His recent album, “The Bell,” won both the 2015 Album of the Year and Acoustic Rock Album of the Year awards from the Indie Acoustic Project Awards.
The show also celebrates Furtado’s new CD “Cider House Sessions – Live at Reverend Nat’s.”
Furtado will be joined on stage by Grammy-winning mandolinist John Reischman and two-time National Fiddle Champion Luke Price.
