Kate Reid @ Norway House


Victoria Folk Music Society: Kate Reid, after Open Stage, 7:30pm at Norway House (1110 Hillside), $7.

Slam poetry meets folk music meets LGBTQ-themed tunes in Toronto-based singer-songwriter Kate Reid whose songs just might have you rolling in the aisles with laughter or dabbing tears from your eyes. Small towns, gender-bending tug-boat drivers, old and new loves, festival beer tents, trying to get a date at the local co-op health food store, and being “the only dyke at the open mic” inform her songs. Nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in 2009, and cited as “Favourite New Discovery” in 2009 by Penguin Eggs (Canada’s Folk, Roots, and World Music Magazine), Kate has 5 albums under her belt: Kate Reid (ep, 2005), Comin’ Alive (2006), I’m Just Warming Up (2009), Doing it for the Chicks (2011) and Queer Across Canada (2013).

Kate performs at live music venues, folk and music festivals, Pride festivals, conferences, and in people’s living rooms. She also combines musical activism with teaching by facilitating workshops and giving concerts and keynote addresses in secondary schools, post-secondary institutions, and community service organizations. She is working on her Ph.D in the department of Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning at OISE (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education), University of Toronto. Kate Reid is funny, passionate, queer as a three-dollar bill, and she’s sure to entertain.
