This Queen's Birthday Weekend we will be speeding into Murchison to perform a sumptuous night of music at the historic Murchison Theatre! Buy your tickets at Hodgons in Murchison or on the Door for just 15 measly dollars! There will also be a full bar on the night with all proceeds going towards the upkeep of this amazing venue.

People of Murchison, we ask you—will you be a better audience than Barrytown? Can you bring it?

The Frank Burkitt Band have become one of New Zealand’s finest string bands, and their style can best be described as ‘Acoustic Swing.' Drawing influence from American roots music and artists such as The Wood Brothers, Pokey LaFarge and Nina Simone, Burkitt’s entertaining and occasionally rambling anecdotes give audiences a chance to really relate to his songs. The originality of the songs stand out, and the arrangements will keep your ears purring!

They are:
- Frank Burkitt (vocals, guitar).
- Kara Filbey (vocals, percussion).
- Cameron Dusty Burnell (mandolin, tenor banjo).
- James Geluk (double bass).

“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.” - Theatreview.org.nz.
