Event

Slaid Cleaves at Forty Acres Concerts Oct. 13th.
Forty Acres is very pleased to welcome Slaid Cleaves back to our stage at the Five Oaks clubhouse! 

On Saturday, October 13, at 8 p.m., Slaid will return to share an array of new and enchanting songs, along with his older treasures.  

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 2000s excellent Broke Down, the Austin by way of Maine artist evokes writers from Guy Clark to Tom Petty, crafting detailed portraits of barflies, drifters and day laborers.

I don't feel any connection to the Dancing With the Stars, National Football League or CMT country music, he tells Rolling Stone Country. I feel like I'm sort of living outside my culture in this little Americana world that we have. It's a tiny part of the culture, but its very vibrant and has everything I need in it.

I tend to think of songs as the whiskey of writing. Distilled down to the essence, powerful, concentrated, immediate. You can take it all in and really feel it in just seconds.
SLAID CLEAVES

The characters in Slaid Cleaves' songs live in unglamorous reality. They work dead-end jobs, 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 a bit of empathy to their uncaring world.

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. 

Advanced tickets are $25, available through the Brown Paper Ticket link. $30 at the door, if available, but we expect to sell out quickly. 

Be there or be square.
