Everyone enjoys good roots, and Warmwaters stand ready to folk you right up with their songs of romance and other issues. They’ve got a lot of issues.
In July 2019, everyone’s favourite best/worst folk duo, Warmwaters, embarked on their intranational tour of Brisbane and Melbourne, to rave reviews:
“David Megarrity and Bridget Boyle dance on the knife edge of hilariously oblivious and utterly self-aware. … Warmwaters had the intimate audience in the palm of their hands”
“Funny and clever, skilfully woven in unexpected ways” – ridehomereview
“timeless and universal humour” – popculture-y.com
The tour launched their explosive new recording – InExperience – A Concept EP. Because in these fast-paced times, who has time for a whole concept album?
“Number 1 must-see show of the 2016 Queensland Cabaret Festival. Every festival has a standout show … a surprise hit or just something so quirky and comedic that no one can stop talking about it. At the 2015 Queensland Cabaret Festival, Warmwaters took that honour.” – Concrete Playground
Hilarious and musical, Warmwaters is a comic cabaret show featuring the duo’s distinctly arousing and original “accidentally-on-purpose cheeky” (Brisbane Times) love and protest songs blended with classics you know and love.
“… naïve song birds blissfully unaware that their entire repertoire is jam-packed with double-entendres …” – The Creative Issue
“Creating beautiful folk music and hilarious comedy together … the audience follow every pun, experience, every passive-aggressive poke made, and laugh consistently at the couple’s expense.” – DownstageDiscernments
A cross between Spinal Tap, The Kransky Sisters, and David Brent, Warmwaters leaves audiences with a smile on their face and all tingly below.
“Great night! So funny our table nearly wee’d ourselves.” – Amanda Allwood
“Cheeky and hilarious.” – E Wood
“Inspirational folk duo Warmwaters … their blend of word play, wind, strings and folk roots was brilliantly crafted … I regret not stealing their set list. This is my new favourite band.” – Lucinda Shaw
Featuring Bridget Boyle and David Megarrity.
Praise for Bridget Boyle …
“… this is a virtuoso comic performance.” – The Australian
“… raucous and irrepressible.” – The West Australian
… and for David Megarrity …
“… as close as Brisbane has to a Renaissance Man.” – Rave
“… full of inspired silliness.” – Kamuke
