The Frank Burkitt Band return to Queenstown as part of their 30 date 'Lost but Alive' NZ Tour. following on from their performance at the Queenstown Winter Festival in June, they are seriously looking forward to playing in the Workshop of the tranquil and gorgeous surroundings of The Sherwood Hotel.
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. 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 The Frank Burkitt Band, with blues and country mandolin player Cameron Burnell and jazz double bassist James Geluk. This mix of styles and genres gives their show unique variety, alongside tight knit harmonies and well crafted arrangements.
