Hi there. Thanks for keeping it going. I love the stories. I am trying to learn some of your songs. Do you have a songbook? Chord book? Way to help me learn?
Thanks
Randy

Hi Randy. That's great to hear. I've been meaning to put together a songbook for a long time. If the rest of my gigs fall through this year maybe it'll finally get done. Until then, you might google the songs you are looking to learn. Depending on the song, you might find chords along with lyrics out there. Good luck!

Q

Hi, after the pandemic any plans to tour UK

Too soon to tell, David. Between Brexit (which complicates work permits, etc) and pandemic, plus the fact that I won't have a new album anytime soon . . . Well, I guess the short answer is no. Thanks for checking in, though. -Slaid

Q

Slaid - Definitely being a snob (sorry about that) but any chance of releasing some vinyl?

(Love oh Roberta...)

Thanks,
Doug

PS - i know it’s a looney bin, but come back to DC to do a show, please!

Hey Doug,

I know there's a box of LPs of the latest release (Ghost on the Car Radio) in a warehouse in England . . . We probably won't start thinking about more vinyl till there's a new album.

Oh Robert was written by my pal Graham Weber. He has a band called Western Youth.

I believe we are booked at Hill Country BBQ in DC in October. Only time will tell . . .

Thanks -Slaid


Q

Hi Slaid, enjoyed your live stream event even with the glitches. When the feed was not acting up I thought the picture and sound were great. Can I ask what equipment you used? Did you use any special mic, camera or programs? Thanks! Dean

Thanks Dean. I was quite happy with the audio and video, given that I was just using an iPad Pro, with its built-in mic and camera. I used the Streamlabs app to upload. I might try a PC next time, though, so I can connect (wired) directly to my router in hopes to avoid some of the glitches. -Slaid

Q

Is there a way to know when you are doing concerts on line? I don't go into facebook much. Thank you! Susan Waggoner

I don't either! We will probably do another live stream in May, and we will definitely announce it via the mailing list. Cheers, Slaid

Q

Hi, Slaid. When is the next online show? I’m reading the comments below and it sounds like the last one was fabulous.

There were a lot of technical glitches, but most people seemed to enjoy it. We are thinking we'll do one a month, and we'll be announcing them on the mailing list. Thanks! Slaid
