    SANTA FE (AP) – Punctuated by the hiss of air brakes, a city bus jostles to a stop. The stage is set. The curtains are already open.
    A woman stands halfway down the bus aisle, her hands grasping the neck of a cello is not your average Santa Fe Trails rider. A belt around her waist is secured to one of the vertical bus railings; as she gently plucks the strings of her instrument, with the bus swaying unsteadily, her pizzicato sound doesn’t stop.
