I would like to have Slaid play my house concert series near Milwaukee. Possibly May 24. Lake Country House Concerts, Hartland, WI
Lake country House Concerts on Facebook
Karen handles the booking: firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be in touch.
Nothing better than hearing from someone that I'm doing my job well. Thanks.
I saw you in Los Alamos! What a wonderful show. I gave you a shout out on my Facebook page and compared you to an early John Prine. Do comparisons like this bother you? An effective story telling singer with a good voice is hard to come by, you certainly hit the mark!. Hickory replaces Twistin' as my favorite. Best of luck in your future endeavors, I hope to see you in another venue:)
Thank you Terri. I'm never bothered by a comparison to the great Prine. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Los Alamos. Hope to be back again before too long. -Slaid
I graduated from Marshwood High School in '82. My first band, The Magic Rats, played a couple of school assemblies and house parties in '81 - '82. I joined a Rochester-based bar band called The Classifieds just before graduating, and we played local venues like The Palace in Berwick, the Spartan Lounge in Dover, and the Victory Club in Rochester in '82 - '83.
June 12 Portland in the works.
Thanks the happy 70th wishes! Yes, the Arts Center in Carrboro is an awesome venue. It’s been there forever and has a large and loyal music following.
They bring in amazing people. Richard Thompson, Joan Baez, Dar Williams, Lloyd Cole, and many others. The intimate atmosphere makes for a memorable experience for both performers and audience.
I will DEFINITELY talk with someone there about an October show. Thanks for the tip!
I’m up in Rocky Mount, VA, right now to see Arlo Guthrie tonight! Very excited. He’s playing at the Harvester Performance Center, another fantastic small venue that’s getting great people. I saw Richard Thompson here last April.
And be sure and stay at the Comfort Inn. It’s just a mile down the road from the theatre.
Last year, I had breakfast with Richard Thompson here and Arlo is staying here tonight!
Thanks so much for connecting with us out here in fan land. It sets you apart :-)
See you in Staunton on May 4!
Chapel Hill, NC
I sure do like you taste in music. Hope you had breakfast with Arlo. See you in Staunton. -Slaid
I don't know, Tony. Mrs Cleaves has dibs on that one tonight. I'll ask her if she minds sharing
Hey! I just discovered you on Spotify and really like your music. I saw you were performing in Staunton, VA, on May 4 and have my ticket!
My aunt and uncle lived in Staunton for 60 years and I have spent many many hours there, since the age of 10. I will be 70 on March 18!
Staunton is a charming mountain town and I’m so glad to see they are bringing in really great performers like you!
I look forward to hearing you on May 4 at The Acoustic TapRoom ?. It’s graduation weekend for UVa so you should have a good crowd :-)
And thanks for reaching out to your fans online this way!
Chapel Hill, NC
p.s. Any plans to head down to the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area? We’ve got three major universities here and it is happening music scene for singer/songwriters of all generations. Lots of great venues, from small to large, too.
Hey Judy, glad you found me on spotify. Congrats on making it to the big 7.0. We should do a toast at the Tap Room.
We'll be passing through the RDU area in October. Maybe if you put my name in the suggestion box at the Carboro Arts Center we can make it happen! -Slais
