Thu. January 11th 2018 Northern Quarter

Presented by: Northern Quarter
***Acoustic Old Time Country Blues//Ragtime//Jazz***

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.
Line up of musicians:
Woody Forster -guitar, vocals
Devora Laye- washboard, saw, vocals
Bonnie Northgraves - trumpet
Wynston Minckler - upright bass

"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, FRUK
