________________________________________________________________

For over 20 years, Slaid Cleaves has spun stories with a novelist's eye and a poet's heart. A rootsy singer and songwriter whos made his bed in the folk world, Cleaves grew up in Maine and lives outside Austin, Texas but tours much of the year. In 1992, he won the New Folk award at the Kerrville Folk Festival.  Now, twenty-five years into his storied career, Cleaves songwriting has never been more potent.

The characters in Slaid Cleaves songs live in unglamorous reality. They work dead end job, 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 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."


Tickets are transferable but not refundable.
