FREE A.I.R. (Artists In Residence) features a local band/musician that takes residency at The Goodfoot for a month of Tuesdays. Every Tuesday evening is filled with surprises from special guests (often times providing everyone with a jaw-dropping evening of fantastic music that leaves them saying “I can’t believe I just saw that for FREE!?!”.

Kory Quinn (and his band ‘The Comrades’)- Portland-by-way-of-­Indianapolis singer/songwriter Kory Quinn is one of those whose music not only upholds well-worn traditions but also sounds fresh in the process. It might be a case of believability: Quinn’s latest nine-song collection, Waitin’ for a Train, carries on the tradition of wandering troubadours and train-hopping drifters, and if that’s a romantic notion (it’s not entirely fabricated–Quinn recently took a trip across the US by train, although it was funded by Kickstarter, so one presumes he wasn’t hopping from boxcar to boxcar), it’s one that Quinn imbues with authenticity. In a crowded field of local roots musicians, Quinn stands out as one who’s got his bead aimed precisely at the truth.
