Christine Kidd is a renowned interpreter and champion of the Scots song tradition and she has performed and recorded, over a number of years, with other singers and musicians to produce some of Scotland’s finest and often award-winning harmony vocal sounds, including successful and groundbreaking projects with Janet Russell, who has herself appeared locally several times, and in supertrio, Chantan.
She is well-known for her traditional material but is also a contemporary songwriter and is currently working on a project involving songs she has written over many years. Her latest solo album, Dark Pearls, was released on the Culburnie label and has received enthusiastic reviews.
“Solo or accompanied, Christine's clear voice and feisty delivery imbue ballad and song with the emotional intensity many singers miss”. Highlander Records.
It's at 8.00pm at the Bothy Folk Club, Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. On-line tickets. Thwaites real ale.
