2013 BIO
Catie Curtis is a veteran of the singer/songwriter folk scene, touring throughout the US for 20 years and releasing 13 CDs. Her credits include touring with Lilith Fair, and winning Grand Prize in the 2006 International Songwriting Competition (with co-writer Mark Erelli) and recording a duet with Kris Kristofferson. Her songs appear in numerous films and tv shows. She has been called a "folk-rock goddess" by the New Yorker, and has performed at the White House several times.

I’m on a plane to Houston, TX, to speak on a panel at the National Conference for LGBT Equality: Creating Change 2014. Barry Lynn, Julia Childs and I will discuss art and activism (two of my favorite topics, next to dogs and guitars).

A couple days ago I was at post office that isn’t my regular PO. I’m beginning to mail out the brand spanking new Flying Dream CD (!), so here I am carrying a heavy box and I walk right in to a glass window/wall that looks JUST like a door. Really, anyone might have thought it was a door! Everyone in line gasps and I eek out “I’m fine!” but I have to admit my head still hurts a little. People told me running my own record label would be a headache… The CD is available now at shows, and 2/25 is the street date!

This coming weekend I’ll perform in Phoenixville, PA (www.steelcitycoffeehouse.com,) and in Rahway, NJ at the Union County Performing Arts Center (http://www.ucpac.org/). Jenna Lindbo will accompany me on these two shows!

On Friday, February 28th I’ll be returning to the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA with my new Flying Dream CD!! Get your tix here: http://www.nbotickets.com/auto_choose_ga.asp?area=9&event=9161 Then on Saturday, March 1st I’ll play in West Roxbury, MA at the UU Church, to benefit students in Nueva Esperanza, El Salvador. Special guest Hayley Reardon opens. http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/367262. Liz Barnez, the fabulous singer/songwriter/cajon player from Colorado will accompany me on 2/28 and 3/1.

Finally, from the New York Times this week: "For Mr. Seeger, folk music and a sense of community were inseparable, and where he saw a community, he saw the possibility of political action." I am so grateful for Pete’s legacy, and for the wide path he paved for folky singer/songwriters like me.

All the best,

Catie
