Fashion describes, articulates, and makes metaphors of the human body. Inexorably, fashion is a window through which we perceive the body as constructed from a reconciliation between the impulse to modesty and the desire to express oneself through one’s physical presence. Specifically, fashion opens windows to the body that frame and define the whole and its parts. Bare Witness strives to see fashion’s practice of covering and uncovering, concealing and revealing, which is a dynamic of dress and a delight for spectatorship.

It always seems to create a certain amount of confusion when a multi-talented artist like Tony Furtado grows in a new direction. Once upon a time, he recorded instrumental banjo music for labels like Rounder, adventurous acoustic music for fans of David Grisman, Tony Rice, and Béla Fleck. A few years later, however, finds Furtado – artistically speaking – all over the map. Now, he also plays guitar (acoustic and electric), sings, writes, and performs in multiple styles. On 2005's Bare Bones, Furtado takes a step back from the eclectic hodgepodge of These Chains for a low-key concert album. True to the title, he backs his own vocals with acoustic and electric guitar and banjo over 11 tracks, producing a quiet and intimate album that reminds one a bit of Leo Kottke's later material.
