Ang Kidd found her voice in the heat and light of Irish sessions, firstly at the legendary Dog’s Bollix in Auckland. She soon found a kindred spirit in Jo Taylor, and together with Jo, and with the ethereal Lou Hayes, formed Brazen, a band of three women, three voices. Later on, Ang moved to Wellington where she joined forces with three more women as part of Irish traditional band Glór na mBan, singing in both English and Irish.
Ang’s alto voice lends itself to both melody and to harmony. Ang has taught workshops on singing & arranging for bands, and on harmony singing, both in New Zealand and in Australia. She has been performing solo for some years now, and has recently started a new singing venture with long-time band mate Jo Taylor, and her sister Lynz Kidd-Edis, called the Pirate’s Daughters.
