Slaid Cleaves October 28th @ Forty Acres
Forty Acres is very pleased to welcome Slaid Cleaves back to our stage at the Five Oaks clubhouse!

On Saturday, October 28, at 8 p.m., Slaid will return to share an array of new and enchanting songs, along with his older treasures.

"I tend to think of songs as the whiskey of writing. Distilled down to the essence, powerful,
concentrated, immediate. You can take it all in and really feel it in just seconds."
SLAID CLEAVES

Now twenty-five years into his storied career, Cleaves' songwriting has never been more potent than on his new album Ghost on the Car Radio, just out on June 23.

The characters in Slaid Cleaves' songs live in unglamorous reality. They work dead-end jobs, they run out of money, they grow old, they hold on to each other (or not), and they die.
With an eye for the beauty in everyday life, he tells their stories, bringing a bit of empathy to their uncaring world.

Ghost on the Car Radio is Cleaves' first release since 2013's Still Fighting the War, which was praised as "one of the year's best albums" by American Songwriter and "carefully crafted...songs about the struggles of the heart in hard times" by the Wall Street Journal.

The New York Daily News called his music "a treasure hidden in plain sight," while the Austin Chronicle declared, "there are few contemporaries that compare. He's become a master craftsman on the order of Guy Clark and John Prine.

Advanced tickets are $25, available through the Brown Paper Ticket link. $30 at the door, if available, but we expect to sell out quickly.

We hope you can join the fun!
