Past Years

In loving memory of Katie Reider who performed at the 2004 HWF.

Kathryn Ann “Katie” Reider (23 May 197814 July 2008) was an American singer-songwriter from Cincinnati, Ohio. Reider described her own music as “Folk/pop/rock fused together into some sort of ‘genre-less’ category.”[1] Reider released four albums, won five Cincinnati music awards and had her songs featured on television programming by ABC, Lifetime, and on the WB‘s Dawson’s Creek before health problems emerged in 2006 that ultimately led to her death two years later.[2] Shortly after her death, the New York Times stated that Reider was “a singer-songwriter with a huge following back home and a growing national fan base, who seemed on the cusp of much larger success when her life was destroyed by a rare tumor that ate into her jaw and face, stole her voice, left her blind in one eye and finally killed her [in July 2008] at the age of 30.” Katie was a featured performer at HWF in 2004.
