Let's attend a performance of American Folk music by David Burchfield!

Enjoy an evening of rich American folk music with David Burchfield. Taking cues from Josh Ritter and Bob Dylan, Burchfield’s lyrics meet emotive grace in nods to Gillian Welch, Glen Hansard, and David Ramirez. David Burchfield performs with a surprising ferocity and emotional delivery that has silenced even the rowdiest of rooms. Critics have called his 5-piece band, David Burchfield & the Fire Guild, akin to “The Band meets the Stray Birds”—equal parts all out rock n’ roll party and sensitively arranged balladry. Burchfield has played the Middle of the Map Fest, Boulevardia, was featured in the Chevy Music Showcase, and has shared bills with Noah Gundersen, David Ramirez, and Joe Pug. Reservations are required. *$10 tickets available for members, seniors, and military. Tickets are available here: https://www.qboutiquestl.com/products/monthly-music-series-david-burchfield Admission includes one free drink and complimentary hors d’oeuvres. Metered on-street parking is available, as well as paid lots adjacent to Kingside Diner and at the Schlafly Branch of the St. Louis Public Library.
