Slaid Cleaves

When: Sun., Feb. 22, 8-10 p.m. 2015

Cleaves is a rootsy singer-songwriter who’s made his bed in the folk world. He grew up in Maine, lives outside Austin, Texas, and tours much of the year. In 1992, he won the New Folk award at the Kerrville Folk Festival. Since then, he’s released more than a dozen albums and appeared on several compilations. He spins stories with a novelist’s eye and a poet’s heart. “A sharply observant songwriter with a deep appreciation for the ageless fundamentals of folk, country, and rock … one of the country’s most compelling roots artists.” —Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader
