Buffalo Springfield, POCO & Souther-Hillman-Furay comprise the illustrious musical career of Richie Furay. He is celebrated for pioneering country-rock with his unsurpassed soulful voice, powerful songwriting and hard driving guitar playing. For these special shows at Natalie’s with his band, including Jack Jeckot, Randy Utterback and Jesse Furay Lynch, music spanning Furay’s entire career will be performed including many of his classics from Buffalo Springfield, Poco, Souther-Hillman-Furay and solo years.
Furay is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee for his work with Buffalo Springfield, a group he formed with Stephen Stills & Neil Young in 1966. He is also inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame for his work with POCO. In 1968, after Buffalo Springfield disbanded, he formed the groundbreaking country-rock band POCO with Jim Messina. Joining them in various stages of the band’s lineup were Rusty Young, Randy Meisner, George Grantham, Timothy B. Schmit and Paul Cotton.
Despite the success of POCO with Richie’s signature songs and its influence on the genre, Furay departed POCO in 1974 and created the country-rock super group Souther-Hillman-Furay with Chris Hillman & J.D. Souther. He remained with the group until 1975 when each member parted ways to pursue their respective solo careers.
“Richie still sounds the same as he did in the late sixties – is still as fresh and vibrant today as he was then”. Greg Harris / CEO of the Rock and Roll of Fame
