Q

Will you come to sing in Louisville KY? Please? You tell such American stories with your songs and Louisville is ready for you. Since I discovered you on Pandora about 4 years ago, you've become my favorite artist...on Pandora,on Spotify, and on all your cd's in my car. Thanks for what you do. Catherine Grant, Louisville KY

Well, thank you for the kind words. We played Louisville in 2016. It was a small but mighty crowd. Closest we'll get this year is Natalie's Coal Fired Pizza in Worthington, Ohio on 5/24. 216 miles. We do that and more almost every day. Maybe you are up for a road trip. The pizza is really good! -Slaid

Hi, Slaid!

Looking forward to your return to The Tractor in Seattle! However, nothing's better than the intimacy of a house show. We've really enjoyed hosting Danny Schmidt (twice) and Carrie Elkin (once). Do you ever do those? If so, my wife and I would love to host you some time here in north Seattle.

Safe travels!

Rob & Ruth

Hi Rob & Ruth,

Indeed, we do the occasional house concert. There are no open dates on the June Tour, but if you get in touch with Karen she'll get you in the database for our next trip to the northwest: slaidcleavesbooking@gmail.com

Thanks Andre, I can assure you there are no teetotalers in the Slaid Cleaves caravan. No Rochester (or Hammandsport) in May, but Syracuse, Wellsville and Buffalo. For booking info: slaidcleavesbooking@gmail.com

Q

Good morning Slaid,
Hope the tour is going well.

Do you ever play festivals or promote your own ? ? if so ,i would suggest a tour /festival with John Doe , Dave Alvin, Jesse Dayton. etc. .

There are so many great americana/folk/alt country musicians these days. I woul dlove something like that, Thoughts ?

Second will you please play Breakfast in hell

Hi there. The next tour starts in three weeks.

I don't get invited to festivals much anymore. I like your taste, though. All those guys tour a lot, separately. Touring together is fun but: you gotta share the money.

I'll play Breakfast in Hell if you write it on a $20 bill and slip it in the tip jar (did I just say that?)

Q

Hi Slaid, is Scrappy Judd coming to any of the gigs in May or just the west coast ones in June?


Slaid Cleaves responded on 04/09/2018
A

No Scrappy in May, just June/west coast.

May gigs will be:
5 & 6: solo (no guitar solos = time for more songs!)
8 - 12: duo with Duke Levine (a rare treat!)
16 - 26: duo with Chojo Jacques (mandolin AND fiddle: two for the price of one!)

Sorry Matt - Reno's "not in the cards," as they say. Sacramento, though, June 7.
