I’m goin out on the highway
Listen to them big trucks whine

Listen to them big trucks whine

Richard Shindell’s The Kenworth of My Dreams

I sold my old Camaro
I sold my fishing boat
A friend said he would cosign
On a small commercial loan
So I shopped around until I found
A rig within my means
I put fifteen thousand dollars down
On the Kenworth of my dreams

Slaid Cleaves ~ OLS ~ Portland, Maine

Slaid Cleaves never fails to satisfy.

At the tail end of a long Austin, TX to Portland, ME road trip Slaid Cleaves and Scrappy Jud Newcombe did the OLS venue justice.

The first half feature the ‘Maine Set’.

Slaid enjoys playing to the specifics of his audience.

His song selection, story-telling and stagecraft do not and did not disappoint.

Having seen and heard Slaid quite a few times over the years but most recently as ‘winter’ Texans we enjoyed the Maine set immensely.

After the intermission it was Texas time: stories in song from TX and a bunch of yodeling to boot.
