Event Details

The TOURISTS Sing for your Slumber series is thrilled to welcome Paul Burch for a special Labor Day weekend show under the stars on the lodge deck.
For over two decades, Paul Burch’s modern roots music has attracted fans and collaborators around the world. His 2020 release LIGHT SENSITIVE was named “Best of Nashville 2020” by the Nashville Scene and features a dozen parables about living in the American south. LIGHT SENSITIVE received 4-star reviews in American Songwriter, No Depression, and All Music.
Burch’s discography features collaborations with artists from across styles and generations including Mark Knopfler, Waco Brothers, Billy Bragg, R&B legend Candi Staton, Lambchop, and Ralph Stanley. “At the risk of being impeached by the bluegrass purists,” wrote celebrated music critic Chet Flippo, “I think Burch is the best duet partner Ralph Stanley has found since his brother, Carter Stanley, died in 1966.”
Billboard called Paul’s 1996 debut PAN AMERICAN FLASH, “extraordinary … establishing Burch as a leader in marrying country’s roots tradition with a modern sensibility”. PB’s contribution to Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign through Hip Hop for Public Health led to a performance at the White House with Chuck D and Doug E. Fresh. Pop Matters called the Jimmie Rodgers-inspired MERIDIAN RISING “another welcome gem from one of the finest contemporary roots performers, not to mention one of the best damn songwriters, operating today.”
All Sing for your Slumber shows at TOURISTS are free, but we do encourage free-will donations that go directly to the artists. Sing for your Slumber performances are powered by BOSE.
