Erased Tapes artist Peter Broderick presents the UK debut of his live show devoted to the songs of Arthur Russell. Born of an original album, this diverse collection, named Peter Broderick & Friends Play Arthur Russell, includes ten renditions of Arthur Russell’s songs, two of which have yet to be released in their original versions.
What began as a festival project, grew into a passionate voyage of discovery, when Broderick’s live performances caught the attention of Arthur Russell’s long-time partner Tom Lee.
This connection has since led to Broderick examining some of the remaining archival work, and performing audio restoration on some of the old tapes, finding himself closer to Arthur Russell’s music than he could have ever anticipated. Broderick’s strong love for his work has grown exponentially and Peter Broderick & Friends Play Arthur Russell is a vibrant and joyful tribute to one of Broderick’s greatest heroes.
