The Frank Burkitt Band - Frank is a story teller, 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, American roots music with hints of jazz, blues and swing very much shape his music. When he relocated to Wellington from Edinburgh with his partner and backing vocalist Kara Filbey, he formed an incredible string band, with blues and country mandolin player Cameron Burnell and jazz double bassist James Geluk.

The Frank Burkitt Band have made incredible progress in the last 4 years, releasing their debut album Fools & Kings in 2015 and becoming a festival favourite throughout New Zealand. They have embarked on extensive national tours of New Zealand and Australia and released their second album Raconteur in March 2018 at Port Fairy Folk Festival (Aus). The album was produced by acclaimed producer Gerry Paul (Grada, Tim O'Brien, Mel Parsons) and recorded at The Surgery Studios, Wellington by award winning engineer Lee Prebble (Pheonix Foundation, The Black Seeds, Fly My Pretties).

Inspired by artists such as Van Morrison, James Taylor, Tim O'Brien and Pokey LaFarge, they play high energy, original music written by Burkitt and arranged by the band. Watch Here
