The Frank Burkitt Band on Friday 24th May 2019
All the way from New Zealand (via Scotland) The Frank Burkitt Band are delighted to be embarking on their debut UK Tour in May and June 2019.
Following on from 4 months of shows in the antipodes, where they were announced as winners of the Vodafone NZ Music Award for Best Folk Artist 2019, the band will be travelling the UK for 6 weeks to as far north as Inverness and as far south as Falmouth.
A set with the band can be described as American roots music infused with folk, blues, country and a sprinkling of swing. Unique and profound songwriting arranged with precision and creativity. A true genre spanning performance awaits. Add to that Frank’s rambling anecdotes and you are in for a special night that will both move and entertain.
They will be joined on their travels by the enchanting Becka Wolfe who will be adding sumptuous fiddle and vocal harmony to the band’s songs as well as singing her own songs in Arabic, French and English.
Music Genres: Blues, Country/Americana, Folk, Swing
