Dave Burland (born 12 July 1941, Barnsley, West Riding of Yorkshire, England)[1] is an English folk singer and guitarist. A former policeman,[2] he has been performing in English folk clubs since 1968 and has been described by The Guardian as having a "uniquely relaxed singing style".[3]

In 1976 Burland joined the folk group Hedgehog Pie, which disbanded in 1978. He re-formed the group in 2010, with Mick Doonan and Jed Grimes.

He provided additional vocals on the track "Wild Goose" on Kate Rusby's award-winning 1999 album Sleepless.[4]
