Mitchel Evan & The Saboteurs w/ David Burchfield
A night of original songs from David Burchfield, on tour from Denver, Colorado, with RVA Americana band, Mitchel Evan & The Saboteurs.
David Burchfield writes American folk music that’s not content to stay within traditional genre boundaries. Taking cues from Josh Ritter and Joe Pug, Burchfield’s literate lyrics meet emotive grace in nods to Gillian Welch, Mandolin Orange, and David Ramirez. There is a powerful candor in Burchfield’s writing – raw, emotive, and rich with details that bring the listener right into the scene of his passion. Whether it be tragedy found or narrowly escaped, Burchfield’s writing sounds like the joy of a man who knows how close the dark can creep to the light’s edge. Inspired as much by his native Kansas plains and his current home in the Colorado mountains, the landscapes of his nostalgia are ever present themes in Burchfield’s songwriting.
