Kate Reid – Vocalist
Slam poetry meets folk music meets LGBTQ-themed tunes in Toronto-based singer-songwriter Kate Reid. She is funny, passionate, queer as a three-dollar bill, and she’s sure to entertain. Her songs just might have you rolling in the aisles with laughter or dabbing tears from your eyes, where singing about small towns, gender-bending tug-boat drivers, old and new loves, festival beer tents, donor dads and lesbian moms, trying to get dates at the local co-op health food store, and being “the only dyke at the open mic” is the norm.
