Scotlands Frank Burkitt (solo)
The sincerity and heart that emanates from his song writing is endearing, to say the least. I believe people who are truly great at their craft make what they do seem easy Janise Kumar muzic.net.nz, March 2018
Come and join Scottish Songwriter Frank Burkitt for an evening of original songs and storytelling during his first trip to Canada. Frank will charm you with his onstage banter before captivating you with intelligently written songs that are inspired by his love of American Roots and Scottish Folk music. He has been living in New Zealand for the past 5 years and formed The Frank Burkitt Band in Wellington. He is touring Canada as a solo artist, however, so this is a rare chance to hear his songs performed intimately and raw.
BIO Frank is a storyteller, songwriter, singer and guitarist. In that order. He has been performing for the last 15 years throughout the UK, New Zealand and Australia and his entertaining, rambling anecdotes aim to give the audience more of a connection with his songs. A folk songwriter at his core, he'll perform half a set of American roots music with hints of jazz, blues and swing whilst the other half will be traditional and contemporary Scottish folk songs, harking back to his days running pub sessions in Edinburgh. His original songs are Inspired by artists such as Van Morrison, James Taylor and Tim O'Brien but at the same time Dick Gaughan, John Martin and Nick Drake. An upfront style of alt-folk-blues with a strong voice, singing songs of emotional power.
