“ She’s still in high school, so we can only play on weekends,” he said.

“ It’s very simple acoustic folk music. I play acoustic guitar and Kacy and I both sing,” he described.
“We grew up playing  music together. Her grandfather, my uncle Carl actually taught me to play the music of the ’40s and ’50s,” he said.

“ So we’re keeping it in the family.
 Clayton and Kacy have been playing together for four years, releasing two CDs along the way including the most recent  “ The Day is Past and Gone,” which they released late last year.

“ We play whenever the Deep Dark Woods are on a break. So it is really a treat to play with her. Though you can only do so much,” he continued adding Deep Dark Woods lead singer Ryan Boldt produced the CD at Dahl Street  Records.

“ We wrote four original songs for it and the rest are traditional tunes from Britain and  the Southern United States,” he described.

“ We both grew up playing together. So we are both in the same headspace, so we both agree with each other a lot about what to play,” he continued.

“ It’s great. It’s a lot different playing solo guitar than the Deep Dark Woods which is a big loud, five piece rock band,” he observed.
 He noted the new CD has been very well received especially in Europe and the United States.

“We’re pretty pleased with it,” he continued.

Kacy and Clayton will touring a lot during the summer , when they will be playing a lot of festivals. But in the meantime, the Deep Dark Woods are gearing up for a tour of the West Coast of the United States, during which one of their gigs will be sharing he spotlight with the Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh.

“ It’s going to be awesome,” he said.
 Kacy and Clayton play the Owl Acoustic Lounge at 9 p.m., April 18
