Terry Tufts

"Have guitar. Will travel."

Tufts is a finger-style guitarist living off-grid with his wife and collaborator (pianist Kathryn Briggs) and daughter in the bush in North Frontenac, Ontario.


Terry has been playing music professionally since 1974. His father's job with the Canadian Government moved the family to Denver at a time when the folk and rock music genres were forming opinion everywhere. Other postings that influenced him musically took him to Ottawa, ON, and Rome, Italy. Upon returning to Canada to complete high school he began pursuing his own musical career as a singer-songwriter and guitarist, as well as working as a session musician and sideman for a variety of artists. (Tom Paxton, Kathryn Briggs, David Francey, Colleen Peterson, Laura Smith, Laura Bird, Ian Tamblyn, Bill Garrett & Sue Lothrop, Charlie Sohmer, The Arrogant Worms, Wayne Rostad, Susan Aglukark, Tracey Brown, and George Fox.)

He has 6 solo albums to his credit, plus a collection of instrumental music and a seasonal album performed and written with Kathryn as part of their duo K.E.W.T.

He blends a well-traveled personal history into music without boundaries.
