THE THREE DAVES DO HANK WILLIAMS

A night of good food, fine drink and great music!

It's 65 years since Hank Williams' tragic and untimely death and The Three Davids - David Chenery, Dave Harris, and David P. Smith - are putting together a killer show that is a broad take on the Hank Williams songbook. 

"Hits, hidden gems, weepers, and stompers (just like the poster says!) performed in duos, trios, and solos. We're not trying to recreate the sound of Hank (what would be the point) we're interpreting his songs with love, energy, and emotion." David P Smith

THE BURYING GROUND

The BURYING GROUND (Vancouver BC) 
***Acoustic Old Time Country Blues//Ragtime//Jazz***

www.theburyingground.com
www.theburyingground.bandcamp.com

*********
The Burying Ground is steeped in influences from 1920ā€™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!

"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
