After moving from Edinburgh to Wellington in 2014, Frank Burkitt was quick to form ‘The Frank Burkitt Band’ which includes Cameron Dusty Burnell (mandolin), Krissy Jackson (fiddle), Kara Filbey (vocals and percussion) and James Geluk (bass).

The Frank Burkitt Band has a very unique sound and feel at it's core. Although heavily influenced by blues, country, bluegrass, swing and Burkitt’s love of his native Scottish folk – it is good old fashioned original song-writing backed up by a band that understands perfectly how to add infectious rhythm and groove (Geluk’s bass), varied and skilled solo breaks (Burnell and Jackson on fiddle and mandolin) and harmonies from Filbey.

They have impressed audiences across New Zealand after a sell out 27 date national tour in late 2015, promoting their first album 'Fools and Kings'. With Burkitt's entertaining story telling, tightly arranged songs and his original vocals, the band provide vibrant instrumentation and delicious harmonies.

Intelligent and thought-provoking lyrics that have great anecdotes to go with them. This is music that is as emotive as it is foot-tapping.
