*TiC* Tony Furtado Tony Furtado Tony Furtado is a guitar, slide guitar, bottleneck slide and banjo fiend. Mostly active in the West, I've been to two of his rare New York shows and pulled him into a tiny room off the main stage of the Living Room for a chat. Listen to his fingers on this podcast where I include two and a half songs, with Peter Bradley Adams harmony on the first, and Ross Martin sitting in on guitar on the the third.

*TiC*  Jane Lui
Jane Lui is a San Francisco songwriter who is touring the US this fall 2008. Nominally opening for songwriter Greg Friedman, their show at the Rockwood Music Hall merged into a round robin, and Jane sometimes accompanied Greg directly.   I discovered Jane as one of the gems of the San Diego scene and interviewed her on her last sweep through NYC, touring as singer for the band Starline Theorie.  

You can hear one Starline Theorie song and 2 of Jane's songs at my sister podcast SnowBark , and a followup podcast of her New York show at the National Underground with Greg Friedman.

*TiC* 070201 Maria The Korean Bride

http://www.mariathekoreanbride.com

Maria Yoon is a performance artist based in New York City.  She has been married 22 times, to different grooms, each in a different state.  I attended her one woman-show and was inspired to create this podcast episode of her story. 

Part One: 

I crafted this piece in January 2007 for the Third Coast Audio Festival, where it was selected for the project called 99 Ways To Tell A Story.   "Maria" remains in permanant archive there as the final piece (#101) of 99 Ways.  The Festival requirements: to start with the words "to begin with, they didn't get along"; to include, in order, a pre-recorded sound, a rhythmic noise and an exclamation; and to run 2'30" precisely.  I've included "Maria The Korean Bride"  among four short clips on the TiC MySpace page 

http://www.myspace.com/touristinthecity1 

Part Two:  

A full Tourist In The City podcast piece, now in the editing studio.

 Background Song:

American Bach Soloists from the Bay Area perform "Kyrie Eleison" [Our Lord, Have Mercy]  J.S.Bach's Mass in B Minor.
