Joshua Burnell: The Glass Knight Tour

Enjoy an evening of live music from this talented act.

Toft House

21st October 2023 - 7:30pm - 11:00pm


Joshua Burnell makes baroque pop for the modern world. Expect hooky melodies drenched in warm, retro-synth textures, reverbing guitars, lush harmonies and words that make you think. Imagine The War On Drugs meets Genesis with lashings of Peter Gabriel stylings” – The Guardian

Joshua’s upcoming album – “Glass Night” – is released on 11th August, the same day as his full band appearance at Fairport’s Cropredy Convention.

Glass Knight promises to be Joshua’s redefining album, taking on a heady concoction of influences from glam, psychedelia to mid-70’s Dylan, while keeping a sharp focus on a modern audience. Through his intricately crafted lyrics, Joshua creates a multiverse of settings, from apocalyptic love songs to re-imagined fairy tales, and introduces otherworldly characters; the Glass Knight being resurrected from an old English folk tale to reflect the foibles of the modern day world.

Joshua’s albums have received consistent Radio 2 and Radio 6 airplay.

“Worthy of a mention in any progressive rock hall of fame” – Fatea Magazine

“Definitely a folk artist worth watching” = The Morning Star
