PRESENTING TFT-TV! (Tales from the Tavern Television)
Since 2003, Tales From the Tavern has filmed and recorded every concert (close to 400) along with an interview with each artist. We are so excited to share these artistically and culturally significant performances and conversations through TFT-TV (Tales From the Tavern Television.) Experience the Connection and share in the Journey of Discovery through Song and Story.
Since Spring 2020, we’ve produced and presented 30 Music Documentary episodes for TFT-TV. Current episodes include:
JOHN GORKA, DAVE STAMEY, ELIZA GILKYSON, KENNY WHITE, GRETCHEN PETERS, PETER CASE, JOHN STEWART, BIRDS OF CHICAGO, DANNY O’KEEFE, MICHAEL ON FIRE, MICHAEL SMITH, JOHN MCEUEN, MARY GAUTHIER, BUTCH HANCOCK, JANIS IAN, TOM RUSSELL, MALCOLM HOLCOMBE and DAN HICKS AND THE HOT LICKS, STEVE POLTZ, SARAH LEE GUTHRIE & JOHNNY IRION, JEFFREY FOUCAULT, PAUL THORN, JACK TEMPCHIN, JIMMY LAFAVE, ROSIE FLORES, CHRIS SMITHER, AND MARIA MULDAUR.
The filming, recording and archiving of TFT-TV was made possible, in
part through contributions from the non-profit Artist Advocacy Foundation,
which helps inspiring artists (musicians, poets, painters, filmmakers,
photographers) in myriad ways, from basic living expenses to medical
and dental to equipment and materials, production and promotion,
transportation, tour support, registration fees, and more. Your tax deductible donation to TFT-TV helps the
featured artists by replacing lost revenue due to Covid-19 work cancellations, and supports the ongoing work
of the Artist Advocacy Foundation. Thank you.
In an interview that was broadcast recently on KCSB (Santa Barbara), Ron spoke about the concert series and TFT-TV. Listen here:
In Honor of Michael Smith
It has been a tremendous thrill and honor to be associated with Michael Smith through the presentation of his performances and the release of his recordings, including “Such Things Are Finely Done”, which is one of the best albums by anyone, anywhere, ever.
We cherish the interviews/discussion we’ve shared with him. He has been a force and an influence in our lives. He has touched us all deeply and in acknowledgement of his great artistry and humanity we will continue to speak his name and play his music and share it with the world.
Peace to you, Michael. You’ve made it, and now you won’t have to be bothered by “bread options.”
