Our latest inductee into the Fan Club is our very first musician - the super talented, Biddy Connor. Aside from playing the viola, Biddy’s many talents also include being a composer, arranger and vocalist. She’s performed with a swag of Aussie dreamboats, such as Laura Jean, Missy Higgins, Tim Finn, Jen Cloher, Darren Sylvester, and is currently performing in The Letter String Quartet, who have been presenting concerts at the Melbourne Recital Centre in 2016. Biddy has just been announced as a finalist for the 2016 Melbourne Music Prize, Outstanding Musicians Award.
Hell, she evens plays a musical saw. That’s right - a wood-cutting, lumberjacking, real-life saw. How very metal for a violist.
Biddy recently took us through 10 things that inspire her, which as it turns out, are as eclectic & interesting as her impressive body of work is.
Biddy was inducted to the Fan Club by Oslo Davis (read Oslo's entry here). Incidentally, Biddy & Oslo collaborated together on the Melbhattan project. Stay tuned to see who Biddy selects for the next episode of Fan Club Journal.
