Partner Event: Slaid Cleaves benefit concert
July 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Slaid Cleaves is performing a fundraiser for the Mill Committee of Old Bristol Historical Society on July 28 from 7-9 pm at St. Patrick’s in Newcastle. All proceeds from this event will go to restoration of the Historic Pemaquid Mill.
Slaid Grew up in Maine. Has family in Round Pond. Lives in Texas. Writes songs. Makes records. Travels around. Tries to be good. Now twenty-five years into his storied career, Cleaves’ songwriting has never been more potent than on latest album Ghost on the Car Radio.
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.
Tickets are $25.00 per person plus service charge and are available at brownpapertickets.com.
