The Burying Ground

Vancouver-based, The Burying Ground formed in 2014 with Woody Forster on vocals and resophonic guitar, and Devora Laye on vocals, washboard, saw, and kazoo. The duo often adds musicians on upright bass and lapslide guitar for their live shows, creating a musically rich tapestry of old time sound with a modern polish. A band that shines when performing live, The Burying Ground have been charming crowds large and small all over western Canada, lending new life to old songs while performing original tunes that reference the 1920s and ‘30s but are for decidedly modern audiences. 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.
