Description: "We're excited to bring Kerrville New Folk winner Slaid Cleaves
to Pump House Concerts.  Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelist's eye
and a poet's heart. Cleaves brings such warmth, tenderness and humanity to
his songs that you’ll be hanging on his words and getting lost in the
worlds of characters. Topics including broken dreams, social injustice,
family ruts and inner battles. “It’s not my job to tell you how I
feel,” he says. “It’s my job to tell you how you feel.”  “Slaid
Cleaves may be the Americana genre’s most underappreciated songwriter. With
a knack for giving breath to perpetually down-on-their-luck characters on
albums like 2000’s excellent Broke Down, the Austin by way of Maine artist
evokes writers from Guy Clark to Tom Petty" © 2013-2020 East Lansing Info
