3BBR was delighted to record iconic pianist, composer and activist David Bridie (My Friend The Chocolate Cake / Not Drowning, Waving) at Wesley of Warragul on May 28.
As we’d hoped, David gave a warm and intimate performance from the piano, in a retrospective of his often restrained and thoughtful songs from throughout his career. He subtly embellished his songs and stories with wild sound or gentle sampled beats, while electric guitarist Rosie Excess drew on his broad sonic palette of often cello-like and plaintive sounds.
3BBR broadcast David Bridie’s recent Warragul concert in two parts on Gippsland Live, our weekly showcase of local live performance. You can listen back to the broadcasts on Wednesday 19th & 26th July 2023 from 8pm to hear the whole performance.
