Melanie Kidd joined as accompanist to the Pewsey Belles in September 2014. Melanie decided that she wanted to use her skills to play for others rather than just at home to herself and family. In her 20s Melanie was part of an all female band playing keyboard in many pubs and clubs in and around Swindon.
After settling down and having a family, she now plays piano for regular church services and also is accompanist to a close harmony singing group in Ashton Keynes. Melanie teaches piano both privately and in school and enjoys the challenges that this brings.
Melanie was overjoyed to be taken on with the Pewsey Belles saying “There is a huge variety of musical styles that this role brings. The ladies are great people to know and be around”.
