Roots, Ragtime and Blues by Vancouver based The Burying Ground

Roots, Ragtime and Blues by Vancouver-based The Burying Ground

They started in early 2014 as a duo and released their first album Big City Blues in June 2015. Now they are a trio and bring songs that carry the soul and vibe of the good days of the 20s in any way instrumentally and ‘Big City Blues’ is a good example. They also covered some classic songs like the ‘St. James Infirmary’, which  they transformed into their trademark style of ragtim , blues and roots.

Inspiration from the 1920s and 30’s

The music of The Burying Ground flows out of their love for the early country, blues, ragtime and jazz and inspired them to create original songs that emulate old ones as a618a9_a80ff5913c3d4946bef4e94d7a1335b4well as to play renditions of songs from the 1920’s and 30’s.

“If you’ve ever yearned to be transported into times bygone or just needed a balm for your old soul, The Burying Ground will take you straight into the sweetest br
oken-hearted foot-tapping realm of your dreams, an experience considerably cheaper than building a time machine.”
