The Burying Ground

August 5 (Sunday)
3:30pm - 4:30pm

The Burying Ground is an upbeat blues string band that brings the fire of punk to the technical prowess and distinct sounds of early blues, country and jazz masters like Blind Blake, Bessie Smith, Gary Davis, Memphis Minnie, Big Bill Broonzy and Jimmie Rodgers.

The core duo of Devora Laye on washboard, vocals and saw and Woody Forster on guitar and vocals lends new life to old songs while also focusing on original material. All three albums have hit the radio charts: Big City Blues (2015), Country Blues & Rags (2017) and The Burying Ground (2017). Accompanied by a rotating cast of masterful musicians, the band attracts a diverse crowd and has been charming audiences large and small throughout Western Canada and the United States. They are set to embark on a 23-day European tour in the spring of 2018.
