Discussion on feminism and identity politics hosted by Tristin Laughter
This discussion will center on "identity politics," and then seek to examine ways in which modern feminist thought is and is not bound to this series of constructs. We will begin with definitions and a short presentation by the moderator of work already done in this field, and then open for discussion. There will be a syllabus posted to the ladyfest website with suggested reading for the discussion as well as printed materials there. All kinds of thinkers are welcome. Presented by Tristin Laughter

Daisy Duke Bio ---------------------
From the Press: "…up and coming artists like [Neko] Case, Oh Susannah, Campbell, [Carolyn]Mark, Daisy Duke, Bocephus King & Radiogram" Kerry Gold Vancouver Sun Pop Music Critic - Mix
"I really enjoyed Daisy Duke at the Vogue Theatre... Watch for these 3 gals with the big voices, guitars and a whole lotta twang, they will give the Alt Country/ No Depression crowd a run for their money" Val Cormier, Discorder Magazine
"Voices clear as spring water twang, for my money I prefer this band to Freakwater" - Phil Oats, Terminal City, Vancouver
"This band is a lot of fun." - J.P McLaughlin, The Province, Vancouver
Daisy Duke hitched up in the early spring of 1997. Jeanne Tolmie and Joyita Ruben formerly of Big Yellow Taxi, and Robyn Carrigan, an ex-Sarah McLaughlin band member, had been playing double bills for a few years and after a jam one night at the Kispiox Valley Folk Festival they discovered their voices blended in an incredibly beatuiful way.
With Jeanne on lead vocals, mandolin, guitar; Robyn singing lead vocals too, plus accordion, banjo, guitar; and Joyita on cello, bass, and harmonies, this trio will keep you constantly entertained and enthralled.
Daisy Duke plays originals and carefully selected covers. A big part of the fun for the gals is getting gussied up for the show - crinolines & gingham, cut-offs & hair curlers, just depends on their mood. They have been compared to Freakwater, Neko Case, and Heartbreak Hill. Described as country kitschen with angelic harmonies, and Bocephus King's favourite Vancouver band.
Daisy Duke have recorded with Steve Dawson at the Hen House and are planning their first CD Release in 2000. The gals have several live CD's courtesy of WHIRLD Records. They win hearts and fans wherever they go.

Check out their on-line video.
