Tav Falco’s Panther Burns Bring a ‘Touch of La Dolce Vita’ to the U.S.

Arkansas avant-roots icon Tav Falco brings his legendary and ever-changing Panther Burns back to the U.S. for live dates this May. Having recently completed sessions in Rome for a new album, coming on ORG Music later this year, the touring lineup of Panther Burns will feature the same Italian players from the album: musical director/producer/guitarist Mario Monterosso (Dale Watson, Red Mount Trio), keyboardist Francesco D’Agnolo (session player for legendary film composer Ennio Morricone), bassist Giuseppe Sangiradi, and drummer Riccardo Colasante.

Robert Palmer declared of Falco in The New York Times, “He is a singer, guitarist and researcher of musical arcane who hasn’t let his idiomatic mastery and increasing technical expertise compromise the clarity of his vision.” Writing in industry trade Variety, Deb Sprague stated “Tav Falco has spent much of the past two decades crafting a revisionist pop culture history. He was post-modern when post-modern wasn’t cool.”

Tav Falco is one of the truly original and romantic forces in American music — the voice that America lost and found. He is tender and virile, flamboyant, witty and dangerous. Falco brings daggers back to the stage.
