Additional tickets released for Joshua Burnside at Flowerfield Arts Centre

Thu, February 02, 2023

Extra tickets are available now for Joshua Burnside’s intimate performance at Flowerfield Arts Centre on Friday 31st March. 

Almost all of the first drop of tickets released before Christmas were snapped up in the first 24 hours of going on sale, so make sure you don’t miss out on the chance to see this experimental folk songwriter, singer and producer live in Portstewart.

Burnside takes influence from alternative electronica and Irish traditional song heritages, chopping and blending them with a mixture of found sounds, world music and unorthodox production methods.

His debut album, Ephrata, released in 2017 on Quiet Arch Records, was championed across national Irish and regional US radio by DJs such as Lauren Laverne and Guy Garvey. To date, tracks on Ephrata have been streamed over 22 million times, and it won the ‘Best Album’ award at the 2017 NI Music Prize. 

His latest EP Late Afternoon In The Meadow (1887) was released in September 2022 and has received rave reviews.  Amplify the Sound wrote ‘The story Burnside paints with his lyrics and music, is vivid, bright, and bold. One can see the story unfold as they listen to the song…I can picture a pub full of locals singing and swaying back and forth to this song.’

He continues to draw new fans along with the admiration of music journalists such as Sirius XM’s Phil Taggart who declares “Joshua Burnside is the best songwriter in Ireland right now, and probably beyond” and Mark Radcliffe from BBC Radio 2 who considers; “He creates a world and lets us live in it for a while… He’s like going to the theatre.”

Joshua Burnside will perform at Flowerfield Arts Centre on Friday 31st March 2023.

Tickets priced at £16 full, £14 concession are available now and can be purchased online at or ring the Box Office on 028 7083 1400.
