Hi Jean,

So close, and yet so far: We've been talking to The Wise in Vancouver, but I don't think they have the date we need. Closest we'll get is Seattle, May 21, I believe. Check tour page for updates.

Cheers,
Slaid

Q

Do you remember Central School 1970 something "God, Flag, Country" presentation 1st. And 2nd place. Slaid Cleaves and Jeff Davis. I have thought of that time often and the summers we spent at each others homes. Love what you do. I still live on the farm on Oldfields and drive by your old place alot and remember those times quietly to myself...Be well

I remember I was 2nd place, so you must have been first. Or was that Lisa Bennett? Sitting in a Jeep in your garage, pretending to drive. Your brother shot an arrow right between the eyes of a chipmunk. When I was hall monitor and reported some girl for running, you called me 'Flatfoot.' You did a mean Johnny Carson impersonation then, when I didn't even know who that was. I think we were 8 or 9. Don't get me started!

Q

Just a comment - I saw you Sebastopol CA at Hopmonk last year and just loved you and your guitar player whose name I have forgotten- Shaggy? Scruffy? When you walked through the audience playing....that was special. So glad to discover you!

So close! That was "Scrappy" Jud Newcomb. It looks like we'll be coming back to Hopmonk on May 23. Maybe we'll see you again soon. -Slaid

Q

Hi Slaid,
My wife and I always enjoy seeing you - we usually see you when you come to Fitzgeralds in Berwyn (Chicago). Do you think you'll be returning to the Chicago area anytime soon?
Best regards!

Thanks so much. Indeed, we are working on a Chicago show for mid June. Keep an eye on the tour page, and we should see you soon.

Q

Hi Slaid,
I'm washing up from dinner and listening to song after song, but there's nothing like a live show and it's been too long! Any plans to come anywhere close to Philadelphia this year?
Thanks,
Ilana

Glad to hear I make good dishwashing music. Indeed it has been too long. So, in the works: July 24 at The Locks at Sona. Stay tuned . . .

Q

Hi Slaid,

My wife and I had an opportunity to see your “acoustic” show in Winston Salem, NC late last year. Any chance you’ll find yourself in the Charlotte, NC anytime soon?

Thanks!

Hey there,

That sure was a memorable show. Charlotte is not on the schedule this year, as yet. But things change . . . If you are on the mailing list, we'll let you know when we're coming back to NC. -Slaid

Q

Hey man. I have my 40th birthday coming up in June. Wondering if you do backyard concerts in NH, and or cause the cost. Love your music and would like to love and make it work if possible. Thanks for responding if you have the time.
I big fan and someone you've helped a lot over the last couple years,

Well, an early Happy Birthday to you Loren. We have done a backyard concert or two over the years, but it's pretty rare. I'll ask Karen to get in touch for specifics. Cheers, Slaid

Q

Hi Slaid,
This is George from the Netherlands. Last time I saw you was in Eindhoven and I have really enjoyed the performance. It has been the fourth of fifth time I could see you. So you might call me a big fan. Hopefully we don’t have to wait too long before you come and visit us again.
Perhaps I can see you in the States since we are coming over in March. We ( me and my wife Renee)are visiting Austin on the 20 and 21 of March so if you are having a gig in the neighbourhood we coulld come and be there. If not are there any special places we should visit in Austin ( music wise). Hope to hear from you soon and maybe we can see each other.
All the best and kind regards

George Lenaerts

Hi George,
Thanks for writing, and thanks for coming to all those shows over the years. We probably won't be touring Europe again until we have a new recording, so that may be a couple of years. Also, it looks like we will miss each other in Austin by just a few weeks - I'll be doing a bunch of Texas shows in mid April. But you will see some good music in Austin in March if you check out these places: The Broken Spoke, The White Horse, Cactus Cafe, The Saxon Pub, The Continental Club (and so many more). Whatever you do, stay away from 6th Street. Hope you have a good time in Texas. -Slaid
