Hi Slaid, any chance of aWork Tapes vol2 being available? Love hearing works in progress and how you put a song together. Hope you get back to the UK soon, another casualty of the brexit madness. Safe travels this year. Simon
Bless you, Simon, you are the first to inquire about a possible Bonus Tracks, Vol. 2. I guess you could say demand is not strong. As for the next UK tour, I like to blame Brexit, but truthfully, I'd like to have some new songs before heading overseas. It could be a while. Cheers, Slaid
I appreciate the invite. If you know of a venue in Huntsville that hosts people like me (like Mary Gauthier, Ellis Paul, John Gorka, Steve Forbert, Chris Smither, Cheryl Wheeler, etc) please send to Karen: email@example.com. Thanks! -Slaid
Do you have or want to sell a vinyl version of Sarrow & Smoke live at the horseshoe? That would be the amazing. I really want to buy this album in vinyl for my niece that turned 21 and is now big into vinyl and will never know the horseshoe. I was going there during the time you recorded this album. I’m extremely sad I missed this show. Probably would have been the best show I’ve seen in Austin and I’ve seen a lot of great ones.
Indeed, I've considered issuing a vinyl version of Sorrow & Smoke, as the songs were mixed to flow from one to the other, as in the live show, and not as discrete tracks. Plus that artwork would look so good in vinyl packaging. To have enough good material for the album, we actually recorded two shows at the Shoe, and while they did have a special feel, there were lots of interruptions for tuning and other technical issues.
Yes! Or sign up on the mailing list, and just reply to one of our emails. Borderline, Heights, Jamie - got it.
Just now discovering your music. I live in CO, just outside of Denver. My neighborhood has an amphitheater that at one time was Chier Colorow's Cave. I promoted a concert last summer where we had Kevin Welch and Butch Hancock play. It was well received, sort of an outsized House Concert.
I was wondering if you would be interested in something like this. If you know Kevin or Butch you can ask them about it. They both really enjoyed playing here. Let me know.
Hey Gregg, Thanks for the invitation. We are overdue for a Colorado visit. Please send an email to Karen: firstname.lastname@example.org She'll get your info, and we'll try to hook up next time we're Colorado bound. -Slaid
We've played Johnson City a few times, but it's been a while. More recently we've been playing in Asheville. Nothing on the calendar this year, maybe next. Cheers, Slaid
Hey there. I see you are in Seattle May 21 and Sebastopol May 23. I am in Ferndale kinda right smack in between on the 101. I'm wondering if you would be interested in playing a house concert here on the 22nd and maybe even pop in to our little local radio station? The music venue here, The Old Steeple, is a beautiful old church but is closed for a private event that evening. You should definitely check them out though for future tour dates. The owner was excited to hear you are coming through.
I went to your show in Arcata a few years ago with my husband and all 4 daughters (newborn to 16 at that point!) And would love to see you again. Either here or in Sebastopol.
Hey Leah, Thanks for keeping up with our travels in your area. We'll be in Nevada City on May 22 - it's been in the works for a while and just went up on the web site. And thanks for hipping us to The Old Steeple - looks like a perfect place for us, and we'll try to work it in next time though. Cheers, Slaid
Just a comment, Slaid. Your music struck a chord with me quite a few years ago when I first heard Broke Down. I feel really fortunate that I came upon your songs. There's a lot of us out there. You're doing a good thing! Trust me....
somewhere in Iowa
Hey Dean, So kind of you to take the time to write. It was 20 years ago that I was in the studio, recording the Broke Down album. I'm always grateful to hear that my music still resonates over the years. -Slaid
