Here’s a last minute announcement that I didn’t have time to make to the email list. Tonight (March 26) we’ll be talking to Slaid Cleaves. We’ve been singing Slaid’s praises since he was at the folk festival 8 or 9 years ago. For reasons I cannot comprehend, he hasn’t been back to Winnipeg since. Maybe he’s been too busy putting out some of the finest records of the past few years, including his stellar Wishbones CD and his great album of covers of under-appreciated songwriters, Unsung. The Steel Belted crew has travelled to Grand Forks and Dauphin just to see the guy, but finally, he’s coming back. He’ll be opening for the legendary Guy Clark on April 5 and he’s got a new CD coming out shortly after that. We’ll catch up with him and talk about the above and much more when we chat tonight on Steel Belted Radio. Tune in at 6:30 pm central time.
Oh, and as if that weren’t enough… we’ve got tickets to the Guy Clark / Slaid Cleaves concert to give away! You won’t want to miss it.
