Slaid Cleaves

Friday night I saw Slaid Cleaves in concert at the Mucky Duck.

Slaid was joined by his long time collaborator Michael O'Connor.

The two performed a number of new songs that Slaid has written in the past year including a tribute to Don Walser. Slaid mentioned that he is in the process of recording a new cd.

Slaid and Michael also performed many of Slaid's earlier songs including: "Sinner's Prayer", "Broke Down", "Drinkin' Days", his version of Karen Poston's song "Flowered Dresses", "One Good Year", "Oh Roberta", "Millionaire", "Horeshoe Lounge", "Lydia", "Wishbones", "Quick as Dreams", "Horses", "New Year's Day", and "Dance Around the Fire".

Mark O'Conor also gave a solo performance his original version of "Devil's Lullaby".

Every time I see Slaid perform he just sounds better and better.
I'm eagerly awaiting a new cd!

More info on Slaid and samples of his music can be found here.
