Bio: Returning to Canada from a long sojourn in the state of Utah, Kate Le Deuce is bringing something unique to the alternative country scene. Channeling 1970s country music, when men lived hard, drank hard, and drove hard, she sing songs for truck drivers, drunks and sad bastards. On subjects such as year-long benders, sexual deviance and macho heartbreak. she cuts through all expectations with her original repertoire. If the greats of 70s country were chicks, they’’d sound like Kate Le Deuce
With her charismatic stage presence and larger-than-life personality Kate Le Deuce is like the Charlotte Bronte of the country music set. Her song writing belies her age, with world-weary themes, tough emotions, and a set of pipes that will knock you back on your heels. Kate Le Deuce has an uncanny ability to simultaneously catch the ears of a noisy bar full of music hipsters and make old boozers who don’t know and don’t care about the music scene cry into their beers. Currently recording a new album, Kate Le Deuce is ready to break hearts and blow minds across her home and native land.
Friday August 26 is the Kickoff Party for PFF 2011, and we couldn’t be more excited to announce that this year we’re presenting The Good Lovelies! Funny and upbeat, with just a pinch of sass, The Good Lovelies’ textbook three-part harmonies, constant instrument swapping and witty on-stage banter have enlivened the folk music landscape since they joined forces in 2006. Even better, the concert takes place in the beautiful newly-renovated Market Hall Theatre, and features an opening set by PFF Emerging Artist 2011 Melissa Payne!
