STRATFORD Courthouse Theatre is excited to be hosting musician David Bridie this weekend.

Over a 35-year career, David Bridie has made a name for himself as a songwriter, composer and producer, and has accrued seven ARIA Awards along the way. From the global impact of his seminal 1980s and 1990s alt-pop groups, Not Drowning Waving and My Friend the Chocolate Cake, to his ongoing work as a solo artist and soundtrack composer, the scope of Bridie’s output and influence are matched by few Australian artists.

As a producer, Bridie has worked with Christine Anu on her debut album Stylin’ Up, Archie Roach on his acclaimed Jamu Dreaming record, plus projects with Frank Yamma, Telek and many others. Not one to be categorised, David has firmly established himself over the last three decades as a music theatre director and screen composer. He has scored the soundtracks for over 100 international and Australian films, television series and documentaries, earning numerous AFI, AACTA and Screen Music awards.

Performing live is David’s first love, and he is currently on tour playing work from all his numerous projects, interspersed with stories from his substantial career. For these intimate shows, Bridie will perform at the piano and is joined by guitarist Rosie Excess.

David Bridie will appear at the Stratford Courthouse on Saturday, May 27.

Doors open at 7pm for an 8pm show. The Wits End Bar will be open.
