“Moving, charming and devastatingly honest, David’s ‘Good Friday’ deals with a troubling issue in an approachable and entertaining way.”
In 2009, David Parkin suffered from clinical depression. As he recovered he taught himself how to play the piano and found himself writing an album about his breakdown.Taking to the stage with two talented multi-instrumentalists and direction from New Art Club’s Pete Shenton, David presents the album in his own inimitable, charismatic way. Chatting between songs he tells us of the breakdown and of the love affair between man and piano that blossomed as he wrote the album.Expect beautiful music, scary music, funny music, a bass, a knife, a glockenspiel, the stars at night, two cellos and a black dog.
