Hey Slaid and Karen, I’m sure you guys don’t remember, but when I was a kid (probably around 2006 or 2007) I got the chance to play and sing breakfast in hell for Slaid outside of the venue in Dunsmuir, California for Slaid on my guitar and it was an experience of a lifetime for me. I got to see you play in Sisters, Oregon last weekend and it was a long time over due. It was an amazing show and I can’t wait to see you play again! Your music has been a part of my life since I was about 7 years old and you have helped me through a lot of hard times and you’ve taught me a lot about my own musical process. Thank you for all you do for folk music!
Well, that sure is fun to hear. You'd think I'd remember such a unique event, but I'm afraid it's all a big blur at this stage. Thanks for taking the time to write - it's so good to hear that my music is doing some good out in the world. Cheers, Slaid
Just wanted to say, on Wishbones from Sorrow and Smoke, one of my favorite parts is when you say Holly that stand has a little knob on it to adjust (or something similar) but the best part is when you say " or we could just get down on our knees and play, whatever you like" Brings a smile to my face when I hear that!
Loved the show in Sisters. Thanks for playing my two favorite songs: Quick as Dreams and Breakfast in Hell! XOSlaid Cleaves responded on 05/21/2019
