Thanx for responding to the Rock Bend Folk Festival question. I know it sounded a little whacked, but I got my answer and can keep on with the search.
On another note...you should really check out Rock Bend. It's always the 2nd weekend in September in St. Peter Minnesota. A variety of great music on 2 stages, cool local vendors and folks that appreciate quality musicianship with a homespun feel. This was the 26th year and had the biggest crowd to date.
Pretty sure we played Rock Bend 10-12 years ago. maybe again some day.
Did you happen to be at Rock Bend Folk Festival in St. Peter Minnesota on Sunday Sept. 11? Not performing, but as part of the audience? Of not, there was someone that looked just like you and we had a connection, but wasn't acted upon and I've thought of it a lot for a month...even posting on Missed Connections on Craigslist...which I despise.
Came across your name and picture via an aquaintance on fb tonight that had seen you here in Mankato 2 night's ago...and my heart jumped. Thus the search continues. Yah...I know I sound like a whack job...but really not?
Really love your stuff, Slaid. Can't wait to catch you live at some point. Typical and predictable question but I'll ask it anyway.. If you were able to spend a week in a cabin just jamming and talking with 4-5 of your biggest musical heroes, who would they be? For me? I'd love to have Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan, and TVZ, all in one place just sitting around picking and shooting the breeze! Just how incredible would that scene be?? Thanks and keep doing what you do, my brother. You're the best...Slaid Cleaves responded on 10/15/2016
