Deirdre Flint is a satirical folk-rock singer/songwriter. A former elementary school teacher, she joined the folk/comedy group Four Bitchin' Babes in 2005.

Her music has appeared on the Dr. Demento radio show and on the television show Nip/Tuck, as well as on The Learning Channel's "A Dating Story" and documentary "Always A Bridesmaid". Her songs, such as "Cheerleader," "The Boob Fairy," and "Past Life Regressed," deal with offbeat topics, often from the perspective of a ditzy female character. She has performed in more than 50 venues across the United States, including The Kennedy Center,[1] and has been reviewed in publications such as Christian Science Monitor, The Washington Post,[2] and Billboard Magazine[3] which called her "Shuffleboard Queens" album, "grown-up satire with a non-cynical wink".

Flint won the New Folk songwriting prize at the Kerrville Folk Festival in 2000, and was Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Showcase Artist that same year.
