“A set with the band is like a trip through the top shelf of the best liquor cabinet – all malt whisky, moonshine and sunlight…a tight-knit ensemble of power and delicacy and a rare treat.” Shannon Beynan –

“Frank Burkitt with a clear load of experience and nightclub savvy in his style. With strong songs and musicianship, his easy listening camaraderie lifted the evening to foot tapping entertainment with a wry sense of humour and professional patter.”

Frank is a story teller, songwriter, singer and guitarist. In that order. His rambling anecdotes aim to give the audience more of a connection with his songs. He draws inspiration all the way from stories he’s been told at the bar to his inner most personal thoughts on long, slow days spent alone. The latest offering ‘Silvereye’, entitled after the beautiful small bird of New Zealand is his most intimate, sentimental and personally revealing album yet. Introspective and extremely indulgent but also crucial for some mental sanity.

From playing the folk clubs of Edinburgh as a teenager to charting on the Official New Zealand Music Charts and winning the 2019 Vodafone NZ 'Tui' for Best Folk Album Frank, through his many incarnations, from Solo to Duo and with full backing band, has won the hearts of audiences throughout NZ, Australia and the UK.

His songs are beautiful, often wittily written, his singing voice and guitar playing carry the songs perfectly, and his harmonies with Kara are intimate and gorgeous. There are elements of Jazz and Blues in his style along with hints of Bluegrass and Country, but this is Folk, in its finest 21st Century form, and his banter is reminiscent of the great showmen of times gone by.
These Sessions will feature Frank's most recent songs; stripped back, pensive folk ballads, intimate, honest and heartfelt. There'll also be some old favourites, rearranged for guitar, voice and flute. Engaging nights of story, harmony and great songwriting.
