Angela Gordon (b. 1974)
Angela Gordon was born in Nottinghamshire, England. She is best know for her work as multi-instrumentalist and backing vocalist in British progressive rock band Mostly Autumn who she has performed and recorded with since 1997. Her work with Mostly Autumn has taken her across the world, notable venues including New York Town Hall and The Baja Prog Festival in Mexico. MA regularly perform in The Netherlands and neighbouring countries where there is a particular love for their strain of Celtic-tinged progressive rock.
The Mostly Autumn family extends to many side-projects including for Angela the acoustically-driven duo Odin Dragonfly and celtic band Stout Boots.
Angela also performs with Leather’o (think Raggle Taggle Gypsy; “… put on her suit of Leather-o”), an eastern-European gypsy/Alt-Celtic group who have received great critical acclaim and warm reception from audiences at festivals and venues across the UK.
As well as these regular commitments Angela is often called upon for studio sessions and one-off live performances by highly regarded artists and groups including Fish (Communion live album), Blackmore’s Night, fellow flautist Thijs van Leer and York Symphony Orchestra.
