Lineup and Details for BJ Cole & Emily Burridge
When BJ Cole and Emily Burridge perform together they produce a dynamic energy created out of their complimentary musical perspectives. Emily, the classically trained virtuoso ʻcellist with a talent for improvisation honed to spontaneous perfection by the demands of top flight session work and BJ; whoʼs session CV confirms his conviction that the pedal steel guitar is long overdue for a re evaluation as an orchestral instrument that demands a sophisticated repertoire.
“The unique combination of Emilyʼs ʻcello and BJʼs Pedal Steel Guitar create orchestral sounds in a new and refreshing context; weaving around one another in a sinuous dance of infectious sound and rhythm” In working together these two have created an eclectic repertoire for their concert program including a classical/jazz interpretation of Henry Purcellʼs Dido, “Appalachian Spring” by Aarron Copeland, “Clair de Lune” by Claude Debussy. A highly original arrangement of the five piano Gnossiennes by Eric Satie, “The Gnossienne Suite” seamlessly tying the Gnossiennes together by using these pieces to provide a window through which they enter a world of intuitive improvisation and sonic adventure.
They have established a strong reputation with their unique musical interpretations and have performed at a number of Festivals including The Aldeburgh Festival, Glastonbury Festival, The Wirral International Guitar Festival, Birkenhead, The Lewes Guitar Festival, East Sussex and The Rochefort En Accordes Festival, France, Halʼs international guitar festival in Croatia.
