"Good Friday": The Clinical Depression Concept Album Show

Moving, charming and devastatingly honest, Good Friday deals with a troubling issue in an approachable and entertaining way. With tunes. And gags.

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. With help from multi-instrumentalist, Dave Dhonau, 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.

"That from such terrible pain something so beautiful, simple and life affirming could emerge is staggering. I still think it's a fantastic bit of work."
- Peter Wyeth

There is NO CHARGE for attending this event. Your company would be most welcome.

Good Friday by David Parkin can be found on all good streaming sites.
