Leslie Hudson: (they/them) is an award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and pianist based in Stratford ON. Their many albums range from storytelling styles to bluesy bar rock to dialed-up, full-band homages to pop culture. They’ve toured extensively across the US, Canada, and all the way to Germany, playing house concerts, conventions, pagan shops and other venues that support diversity. Leslie’s passionately honest approach to their craft dives deep into archetype and folklore, modernizing ancient voices and shining a spotlight on the shadowy paths we walk through life, myth, media and mental health. Leslie is celebrating their 10th year as a performer and their first time back to OVFF since 2019.
