Carol Kidd - Dreamsville - Burnley Express


04 November 2008
Burnley Express
Rebecca Hay

Scottish jazz legend, Carol Kidd is back in musical dreamland after a eight year absence. The queen of tartan has just released her new album and it was worth the wait.

Dreamsville has helped Kidd get over the trauma following the death of her partner John in 2003. His loss caused Kidd to lose the will to sing, but after a long bout of recuperation, she is back. She found therapy in writing lyrics and the songs, co-written with guitarist Nigel Clark, 'Do You Believe' and 'There Goes My Heart'.

Kidd is well known for her wonderful timing and voice and despite now living in Majorca, she is still a Glasgow girl at heart and one that keeps fans in Dreamsville.
