Christine Kydd, singer and songwriter
Check any online folk music station or magazine these days and chances are that there will be someone running out of superlatives to describe Christine Kydd’s latest CD “Shift & Change”! Christine is, of course, one of Scotland’s leading, award-winning singers and recording artistes. With eclectic tastes, she is best known for her treatment of traditional and contemporary songs and her solo set is as likely to include self-penned songs as the work of Marra, Springsteen, Hulett, Wellington, McVicar, Jacob, Tannahill and Reid.
Christine also sings the songs of Robert Burns, and features on several volumes of Linn Records collection The Complete Songs of Robert Burns. As a Burness from North East Scotland, she has family connections to Robert Burns’s family tree.
A singer of traditional songs and ballads, she is an international traditionalist, her choice of songs rich and varied, but with a focus on the song culture of Scotland.
She has toured, broadcast and recorded extensively both solo and on a number of projects to produce some of the country’s finest and often award-winning sounds, including singing with Janet Russell, Chantan, Calluna and Sinsheen.
A highly-regarded educator, theatre performer and vocal coach, she recently graduated with a Master’s degree in Ethnology and Folklore.
