Sacred Grounds

On the 29th November 2019 Sacred Sessions will return to Exeter’s Sacred Grounds in McCoys Arcade with beautiful music from Joshua Burnside.

‘Northern Irish experimental folk songwriter and producer Josha Burnside is something of a regional anomoly. With a brooding powerful sound echoing artists of places afar and time long gone.

Burnside deftly blends alt-folk and elements of the Irish folk song tradition with South American rhythms and Eatsern European influences, whilst introducing synthetic and found-souns, synth loops and crunching beats to create a stormy world that shifts and swirls perspective like a lingering dream.’

Join us on the 29th for an intimate evening of sound, community and an exclusive Sacred Grounds menu. We’ll be rolling out the rugs and dimming the lights as we gather in the atrium for an unforgettable sacred experience yet again.
