Charlie Slick crashes TEDxDetroit

Charlie Slick crashes TEDxDetroit is the latest installment in our Tumbleweeds series.

Last week we met up with Charlie and Molly. They had no idea where we were taking them. In fact, the only information they were given was to bring whatever gear they could carry and to be ready to play. We learned a few things along the way such as … don’t send Charlie vague emails – he won’t respond.  Also, it seems that Charlie has a unique way of critiquing art that could only be expected from a performer of his prowess.
