Massachusetts Poetry Festival: Music and Poetry Event with Kaia Kater and Sadie Dupuis

Join us for an incredible night of poetry and song with singer-songwriters Kaia Kater and Sadie Dupuis. Both artists will read from their own orginal works of poetry and share their music.

Sadie Dupuis is the guitarist, songwriter & singer of rock band Speedy Ortiz, as well as the producer & multi-instrumentalist behind pop project Sad13. Sadie heads the record label Wax Nine, edits its poetry journal, and has written for outlets including Spin, Nylon, and Playboy. She holds an MFA in poetry from UMass Amherst, where she also taught writing. Mouthguard, her first book, was published in 2018 (Gramma, Black Ocean). Her most recent album is Sad13’s Haunted Painting, released in 2020.

Montreal-born Grenadian-Canadian Kaia’s jazz-fueled voice and deft songcraft have garnered acclaim from NPR, CBC, Rolling Stone and No Depression. Her 2016 release 'Nine Pin' earned a Canadian Folk Music Award, sending her on 18-months of touring from Ireland to Iowa. Her most recent album 'Grenades' explores themes of migration and belonging and has been nominated for a 2019 JUNO award and long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize.
