Thank you for the response, I am sorry to hear that Huddie has left, we lost Ace, our old big old labrador puppy last year: 1999-2013. Maybe a song should be written in honor of old good dogs lost, resting in heavan's fluffy bed...or something like that. Anyway, we have a back up band on standby for you next time you're in the Dallas area, banjo (don't think you have any banjo songs recorded that I know of), pedal steel, electric guitar and bass (also electric) and drums. No charge, just the honor of playing with. Good luck with the rest of your tour, we might come down next week to see you in Houston and next month for sure in San Antonio!
Gotta love a big old dog. See you down the road.
Slaid, my wife and 2 sons ages 24 and 26 (and his wife) attended your concert at Poor David's Pub last weekend and we all really loved it! I was the guy who requested Green Mountains and Me, which actually brought yet another tear to my eye! We all really loved the whole show so very much, you have such a great gift! OK, here are my questions, what kind of guitar do you play and what kind of strings and amplification? We have a small music studio and play together as a family and I really like your sound. Second, when will you be playing with a full band, or do you ever tour that way? I think it would be a neat juxtaposition to compare the full depth of a band with the intimacy of your show at Poor David's. Finally, tell me about the dog in your picture...he looks like a good puppy...what's his name, breed and age? OK, that should keep you busy, have a great week!Slaid Cleaves responded on 10/08/2014 Next question
I've just recently discovered your music, and picked up Broke Down. Man, what a great album. Looking forward to picking up your latest record + then the rest of the catalog. Wasn't able to make it to your most recent show at the Beachland (in Cleveland), but hope to catch you next time for sure. Any chance for another northeast Ohio gig next year?
