DAddario tru-strobe pedal tuner
Victor Furtado, a teenager steeped in the banjo since childhood, knows such moments well. As a virtuoso now poised to enter conservatory, he stands out among his peers.
This album marks Victor’s third. He published his first solo collection at age eleven. The youngest of nine children in a musical family, he began playing at nine. He received initial tutoring from his sisters, as well as his father, and benefitted from an instructional video by banjoist Lynn Morris. His playing is anchored in the Round Peak style, a fiddle-and-banjo approach centered in Surry County, North Carolina, and given lasting renown by traditional exemplars such as Tommy Jarrell, Fred Cockerham, and Kyle Creed. For Victor, however, his exposure to these historical sources comes indirectly. He absorbed this style not from their recordings but from their admirers. At times he draws from YouTube performances that pique his interest, and these, too, serve as resources, each one offering him a jumping-off point. He reckons with this music not through the lens of a preservationist or by means of apprenticeship, but as a participant.
