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] proves to be a natural-born storyteller.” – The Globe & Mail
Ivan Coyote’s latest live performance, Kraft Singles for Everyone, is a hilarious and heartbreaking show that opens with the death of a beloved grandmother and matriarch, and touches on subjects like growing up queer in a large Catholic family, 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. The show is written by Ivan Coyote and scored by musician and composer Jon Wood.
“Coyote is to Canadian literature what kd lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture.” Ottawa Xpress
Since the mid-nineties, singer-songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist sideman Jon Wood 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.
“It’s simply a small treasure of storytelling existence.” – Quill & Quire
