'The Lamproom Daily' - Day 122 - Barnsley folk legend Dave Burland at The Lamproom in 2016....

Dave Burland, national treasure of the British folk scene for over four decades, presents an evening of classic acoustic songs. Dave is ably assisted by The Awkward Squad - Dave Fisher on lap-steel guitar, keyboards and vocals and Bryan Ledgard on percussion and vocals. The trio performs traditional and contemporary material from both sides of the Atlantic with dexterity and passion. Don’t miss this rare appearance ­ an evening with a true feelgood factor.

Dave Burland is an English folk singer and guitarist. A former policeman, he has been performing in English folk clubs since 1968 and has been described by The Guardian as having a "uniquely relaxed singing style."

In 1976 Burland joined the folk group ‘Hedgehog Pie’, which disbanded in 1978. He re-formed the group in 2010, with Mick Doonan and Jed Grimes.

He provided additional vocals on the track "Wild Goose" on Kate Rusby's award-winning 1999 album ‘Sleepless’.
