Singer-songwriter Bill Campin. also owner of Café Carpe in Fort Atkinson Wisconsin, referred me to you. I'm working on an article for the biannual print quarterly edition of No Depression about Midwestern music. Specifically I am concentrating on Midwestern music venues. I hoped to get a quotable comment from you about the qualities that make Café carpe a good place for you your music in your audience.
Thanks for whatever thoughts have on this,
Bill and Kitty are lovely people, always a joy to be around and work with. They seem to know just what the priorities in life should be. Cafe Carpe is as cozy, intimate and lived-in as your favorite old guitar. A reliably great place to experience acoustic music.
I never heard of you until one night I looked up Elton John's "Texas Love Song" . Wow. Saw yours and played it. Then I found out our Echo knows all you're songs. My wife keeps telling me to stop playing the same old stuff but can't help it. Love you're melodies and lyrics. They tell a story. Always loved ballads. Breakfast in Hell is up there with the Edmond Fitzgerald.
Anyway, would really like to see you at the Horseshoe Lounge, but that probably won't happen any time soon. Any chance you might schedule a gig in Atlanta ?
Slaid Cleaves when are you come over to Knoxville, Tn? Bring some cd's with you - they are hard to find here.Slaid Cleaves responded on 10/31/2016
