Hello Slaid, just to THANK YOU for the beautiful show I just saw at the Blue Rock Studio, from France. And as we can ask you a question, I just have one: what is your dog's name?
Glad to hear you found us at Blue Rock last night. A gem of a night. To answer your question, after 16 fun-filled years our dog Huddie is no longer with us. Actually, she is still with us in spririt every day.
Slaid, just wanted to say that for me, your music really is what country music has always held the promise to be. It's almost casually devastating, at its best. Songs like "Wishbone," "One Good Year," and "Horseshoe Lounge" have been a tremendous kind of musical therapy for me at many of the darkest times in my life. In your songs I hear a musical lineage that moves uneasily from Johnny Cash to Bob Dylan and George Jones. You really know, or at least imagine perfectly, what down and out looks like. Thank you for your songs.
But none of this is a question! When will you come to Arizona? You're on a very small list of people I want to see live.
Thank you so much, Slaid. Am writing a book - A folk life - with the folk singers I love and... the dogs). I'll send you the chapter with you and the book when finished.
Wish you a lot of good things.
