"He plays the dulcimer like Jimi Hendrix. He has this ability to communicate a sensual energy when he's onstage" - Tom Shed, Florida Folk Festival organizer

 "...a high-energy solo performer and frontman..." - Music Connection 

 "Musical Tabasco!" - The Orlando Weekly 

You never know what's gonna happen next at a Bing Futch show.   Using Appalachian mountain dulcimer, Native American flute, ukulele and a pedal board equipped with a loop station, he deftly navigates the varied waters of traditional and modern Americana with passion, wit and a genuinely huge heart for sharing music with a crowd.

Known for his musical shape-shifting, Futch switches the channels on style with every new song, sung in a limber tenor voice and woven together with the other instruments. His casual way with any audience, coupled with a fierce originality on the lesser known mountain dulcimer, makes each show a one-of-a-kind and good-timing romp.

As a nationally touring solo performer he's headlined at such events as The Walnut Valley Festival, The Florida Folk Festival, Old Songs Festival, Indiana Fiddlers Gathering, The Big Muddy, Kentucky Music Weekend and Common Ground On The Hill.

With a strong love for traditional music, Futch has enjoyed a career on both sides of the folk and rock divide, first as guitarist for CCM post-punkers Crazed Bunnyz in 1986 and much later in 1999 as co-founder of Mohave on mountain dulcimer.  That band, with bassist Mike Burney and drummer McGyver, took off after their debut performance at the House of Blues at Walt Disney World and over the course of the next seven years would become a crowd favorite and open for the likes of Molly Hatchet, St. Somewhere and The Crests.

In 2014, Bing won the "Solo Artist" award in the Central Florida Blues Challenge competition, earning a coveted entry into the 2015 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN, where he advanced to the semifinals, gaining new notice and fans for himself and this unique instrument. Several months later, Bing competed in the 2016 International Blues Challenge.  There, he advanced all the way to the finals and was named "Best Guitarist" in the solo-duo category, despite competing solely on the mountain dulcimer.

Futch can often be found teaching music workshops at various festivals and colleges, presenting music education programs at schools and libraries and producing episodes of his video podcast Dulcimerica which has been viewed by over a million people worldwide and is currently in its 11th year.
