Hi Slaid. It was great seeing you at Club Passim the other night. Thanks again for playing my second-choice special request - Brother's Keeper. Great song. I especially love the use of the past tense "slew" in the chorus - not a word heard often in contemporary music. Also, despite the reference to fratricide, nobody ends up dead, no one's body is twisting in the wind or sprawled on a race track lifeless as a doll. And certainly no one gets simultaneously drowned and crushed under a log jam! In other words, it's one of your more light hearted songs.
Brian and I are loving the new album!
See you next time you're in Boston.
Oh Donna, so good to see you. I have a vivid memory of drinking Jamesons with you at Jurys Hotel in Cork in 1986, discussing my prospects in the music industry. You were encouraging and realistic. Who'da thunk I'd rise to this level of relative obscurity? And you are right: Brother's Keeper is merely aspirationally fratricidal. Best to you and Brian,
I saw you last night at Passim's in Harvard Square, also saw you at Stone Mpountain this past summer. I've been binge listening to all of your cd's since. Absolutely love Sinner's Prayer on Wishbone. So appropriate to our time today in this age of excess. Would love to see you re-release this as a single. Bet it would be a hit! You have an amazing ability to capture the "heartbreak of life".Slaid Cleaves responded on 10/21/2017 Next question
Hi Slaid. Thank you for the brilliant show in the Tivoli Utrecht. We really enjoyed it, thank you. When we spoke to you we mentioned about you maybe next time appearing in North Wales. We promised to send you the email of the person who puts the shows on at long last here it is firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again thank you for the show
Andy and Freda
