About BJ Cole & Emily Burridge pedal steel guitar & cello

BJ Cole and Emily Burridge produce a dynamic energy that has evolved from their complimentary musical perspectives

Emily, the classically trained virtuoso 'cellist with a talent for improvisation honed to spontaneous perfection by the demands of top flight session work, and BJ, who's 35 year long session CV adds weight to the conviction that the Pedal Steel Guitar, his chosen means of expression, is long overdue for a re-evaluation as an orchestral instrument that demands a sophisticated repertoire. The unique combination of Emily's 'cello and BJ's 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.They have established a strong reputation with their unique musical interpretations and have performed at a number of festivals including: The Aldeburgh Festival, The Wymondham Festival, Glastonbury Festival, The Wirral International Guitar Festival, Birkenhead, The Lewes Guitar Festival, East Sussex and The Rochefort En Accordes Festival, France, Hal's International Guitar Festival in Croatia and a recital at a concert hall in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Art N, 2035 years ago

“What a surprising duo!... Cello and Steel Guitar, how could it work? But work it did with languorous, sensuous, moving music...amazing! Ravel's "Pavanne for a Dead Infant" is a well know piece, performed so often it has become over familiar. But their arrangement placed it in a different perspective and it sounded fresh, like hearing it for the first time. A great little concert, thoroughly engaging and enjoyable” Art Nouveau
