Indie/Folk Series Presents Slaid Cleaves
18 April

Slaid Cleaves follows in the tradition of exceptional Texas singer-songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Billy Joe Shaver and Guy Clark, crafting poignant and poetic narratives that have established him as one of Austin's best talents. For more than 20 years, he has spun stories with a novelist's eye and a poet's heart. A past winner of the prestigious New Folk competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival, an award previously given to such artists as Nanci Griffith, Robert Earl Keen, and Steve Earle, his 2000 release Broke Down brought his greatest success with the ballads of outcasts and broken hearts sympathetically rendered reaching the top of the Americana charts.
