Gary Furr & Friends C.D. Release + Keith Elder to Open
May 18, 2017 at 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Tickets $12 at the door
Dr. Gary Allison Furr has been playing, writing and singing music his whole life. He has played for 19 years with Shades Mountain Air, a Birmingham acoustic-bluegrass band, e recorded two CDs, with whom he recorded three CDs
In 2007, Gary put out his first solo album of all original songs titled permanent world of pretend. It was followed by Overload of Bad News Blues in 2010 and What It Is in 2012. Now, after five years of songwriting and playing them, he debuts his newest batch of songs, and maybe his best, at Moonlight on the Mountain on May 18. This newest effort is titled “Uncle Vance’s Guitar,” and it was inspired by a 1949 Gibson J45 that belonged to his Dad’s oldest brother, Vance Furr.
He is backed up by a solid group of friends on the CD, including fellow SMA member Don Wendorf, fiddle player Mark Weldon, Brent warren, a well know guitar and mandolin picker in Alabama and Rachel Turner on the bass. His concerts always involve heart, soul, laughter and maybe a tear or two, and for sure more than one story worth hearing.
