You’ll find yourself toe-tapping along to swinging songs about trains and heartbreak when you don your ornately flowered Western shirt and make your way to Nied’s Hotel, in Lawrenceville, to catch local country stalwart Slim Forsythe.
Slim Forsythe, hitting that age of plentiful senior discounts, will celebrate his 62nd birthday Friday night at the Nied’s Hotel, 5438 Butler St., with the release of a new 7-inch single on the Get Hip Folk Series.
Kevin “Slim” Forsythe’s resume includes stints as an oil field roustabout, apartment building concierge and typewriter cleaner. He’s published four novels and has a law degree from the University of Pittsburgh.
Forsaking the law for the creative life, and living above the bar at Nied’s.
