About the Performers

Reid Jamieson is a Vancouver-based singer-songwriter, a regular on CBC’s Vinyl Cafe, and winner of the grand prize for folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. A gifted interpreter of classic and cult tunes, Reid is also an inspired songwriter whose original recordings feature guests Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Sarah Harmer, and members of Blue Rodeo. Reid can often be found performing with his songwriting partner (and wife) Carolyn Mill. This creative couple just wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Fest by winning first prize in the Pickin' a Folk Star Contest; they continue to create music that matters by regularly releasing songs on topical subjects from politics to everlasting love. A male k. d. lang, a poor man’s Michael Bublé, or Roy Orbison’s long-lost son; the comparisons continue to come in but Reid remains uniquely himself.

Kate Reid is a professional queer-musical-activist based in Vancouver, BC. Her critically acclaimed catalogue includes three independently released albums: Comin’ Alive (2006), I’m Just Warming Up (2009) and Doing it for the Chicks (2011). Kate’s upcoming fourth studio project, Queer Across Canada (2013), is a collection of songs she wrote and recorded based on interviews she conducted with LGBTQQ families. With rapid-fire wit, an honest and often irreverent delivery, Kate is a guitar-playing, harmonica-slinging singer-songwriter and bona-fide storyteller. She is also a lesbian who holds nothing back about her life and how she views the world. The unique thing about Kate’s writing is that she turns personal experience into songs that resonate with universal human experience. Her lyrics are honest and poignant: sometimes hard-hitting and sometimes hilarious. Known for her self-deprecating and tongue-in-cheek humour, Kate’s songs brim with socio-political commentary: her passion is music with a message.

Danny Davies is an independent recording artist whose travels have taken him around the globe and across the country, performing at campfires, theatres and everything in between.  Based in Delta, BC, Danny’s songwriting influences range from the traditional country music of his parents’ record collection (Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Johnny Cash) and the AM rock radio hits of the 60s and 70s (Elton John, the Eagles, Paul McCartney and Steve Miller) to the mainstream pop/rock music of Bon Jovi, U2 and Bryan Adams in the 80s and 90s. Danny has four albums to his credit; his latest solo release, The Road, features the West Coast anthem “Come Out West” (watch the video on YouTube!). His 2006 single “Big Town” was licensed as the feature track on the soundtrack of Tears for April – Beyond a Blues Lens, an acclaimed documentary honoured with the 2010 Indie Film Fest Award of Merit.

Host Shari Ulrich took up the Bluebird North torch from Ron Irving 17 years ago and is committed to bringing great songwriters to Vancouver audiences.  She is currently finishing a new solo album – her 21st overall, including her work with Pied Pumkin, UHF, her trio with Barney Bentall and Tom Taylor and The High Bar Gang’s “Lost & Undone”, an oldtime gospel bluegrass album due in October.
