Kraft Singles for Everyone is a heart-felt and heartbreaking performance that opens with the death of a beloved matriarch and touches on such subjects as being an ex Catholic queer and the dynamics of small town big families, and leaves us all asking ourselves what we truly inherit from the blood that runs in our veins.
Grappling with the complex and intensely personal issues of gender identity as well as topics such as family, class, and social justice, Ivan Coyote is an audience favourite from Anchorage to Amsterdam. With a generous heart, a quick wit, and the nuanced and finely-honed timing of a gifted raconteur, Ivan's stories remind of us of our own fallible and imperfect humanity while at the same time inspiring us to change the world.
Ivan is joined by singer-songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist Jon Wood. Jon has toured North America and Europe extensively. As a record producer, initially for himself with his own Flophouse Jr project, he has worked with growing numbers of independent Canadian artists including Herald Nix, Rae Spoon and The Beige.
"Coyote is to Canadian literature what kd lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture." ~ Ottawa Xpress
