Joshua Burnside and PORTS / October 2017 English/Irish Tour

 
By on Friday, 11th August 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Two great talents from Northern Ireland will be coheadlining on a tour in October that will take them through England and Ireland. Joshua Burnside (pictured above) and band PORTS have different musical sensibilities, which I think makes for a good pairing. They’re alike enough that their own fans will likely take to the other act. Burnside released his album ‘Ephrata’ in May, and you can read Adam’s review of it here. The release of PORTS’ debut album ‘The Devil is a Songbird’ shortly followed Burnside’s; you can read about their album launch party in Derry through here. Tickets to the entire tour, whose English leg takes place in the first week of October and Irish leg follows on the last week of October, are on sale now. For more on Joshua Burnside here on TGTF, use this link; for PORTS, go here.
