Would you consider taking on a literary figure's work and adapting it to your art....like Greg Brown did with William Blake or Luciana Souza with Pablo Neruda?
I have considered it. Haven't found the right piece yet.
After hearing your song "Quick As Dreams" (I used to breeze throroughbreds in Epsom, England) I became a pretty big fan of your music. If you ever made it to Wyoming, I think you eould find a pretty good support base here...we like stories in our music, combined with traditional soundsSlaid Cleaves responded on 09/23/2014 Next question
Hello Slaid - Some friends, my sweetie, and I, are coming to to see you at the Aster Cafe this coming Sunday for the first time. Though I've been a fan of yours for many years, this will be our first chance to "see and hear" you live. (That fate thing) I would normally never ask/request a particular song for someone's set, but if you wouldn't mind working "Breakfast in Hell" into the evening, I would love to actually hear that one "live" - Thanks in advance. I hear my friend Mary Gordon Hall got to open for you recently in VA. - Hope it was a great night! Apologies for the long "question" - Safe travels, and all the best!
