Season finale - Dave Burland

Dave Burland
'Dave Burland is one of the most well-respected and long-established performers on the folk scene. His apparently effortless singing and guitar playing gained widespread acclaim 40 years ago when his first album, A Dalesman’s Litany, was voted Melody Maker Folk Album of the Year. Nic Jones summed up Dave Burland perfectly when he said: “He’s a uniquely calm, gentle and clever singer who makes you feel it’s all so amazingly simple.” He’s also been described as the Frank Sinatra of traditional folk music. And he’s also got a deliciously wicked sense of humour.' - Costa Del Folk Festival.

Dave is an old friend of the Bothy Folk Club and has played there many times, He has been playing the folk scene since the late 60s and is noted for his laid-back style, his humour and, most importantly, his delivery of good songs. He is the final guest of the summer season at the Bothy, and this will be a chance to see a master of his craft at work. The Bothy meets at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. Tickets on-line or on the door, subject to availability. The venue sells Southport real ales.
