The BURYING GROUND
& Special Guests
Bonnie Northgraves Trio
***The BURYING GROUND***
The Burying Ground is steeped in influences from 1920’s ragtime, country, Mississippi blues and New Orleans Jazz.
A band that shines when performing live, they have been charming audiences large and small across Western Canada and the United States, lending new life to old songs while performing original tunes. Known for their songwriting, they aim to shed light on aspects of the human experience that resonate into the modern day, touching on mental health, the traumas of war, social justice and good old fashioned lost and found love.
Woody and Devora will be touring with Bonnie Northgraves on trumpet and Wynston Minckler on upright bass!
The Burying Ground “have established a sound that, should the fuzz, crackle and hiss of a well-loved 78 RPM record be added, would feel directly transported from the juke joints and speakeasies of the Prohibition era. This is beautifully realised, pure roots music created in the same spirit of contemporaries such as the Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Crow Quill Night Owls, or fellow Vancouverites, Petunia & the Vipers. And, frankly, I cannot get enough of this wonderful stuff!
I will look forward to anything The Burying Ground offer up from here on in. While they may be devoted to the precious music of a long gone golden era, they still have an awful lot to offer the present and future, as music this good is evidently timeless.”
–David Morrison, Folk Radio UK
