ABOUT THE ARTIST
Featured at the Gathering for her seventh year, Brigid Reedy has become a singular young voice representing her beloved home state of Montana. A charismatic performer since the age of two when she first yodeled at the Pioneer Saloon, Brigid (now nineteen) has traveled widely, carrying with her boundless enthusiasm, grace, passion, and soul. Brigid is joined by her father, John Reedy, and her little brother, Johnny “Guitar,” who at only fourteen has transcended the role of sideman, becoming a full-fledged collaborator and possessing a phenomenal gift for rhythm and extraordinary musical sensibilities.
