Frank Burkitt and Kara Filbey - Guitar , vocals and flute

'The sincerity and heart that emanates from his song-writing is endearing, to say the least. I believe people who are truly great at their craft make what they do seem easy.' Janise Kumar - muzic.net

Scottish born, Frank Burkitt has been performing as a singer-songwriter and guitarist for 15 years with partner and vocalist/flautist Kara Filbey. They met in Edinburgh in 2004 and have since performed extensively throughout the UK, New Zealand and Australia. They now live in Wellington, NZ. Their set is a broad mix of original and traditional Scottish folk songs with the odd country ballad thrown in. Burkitt’s highly intelligent songwriting is what sets him apart, as well as his ability to tell great stories to accompany his songs. Two voices that have had 15 years to blend and produce the closest, most stunning harmonies that you’ll hear. Captivating and intimate performers that will entertain and enchant.

The Tangle are a new group, formed at last years Celebrate St Andrews Day event led by Robert Scott who play well known and obscure Scottish favourites from yesteryear. It's all about the tunes and melodies, all 4 (sometimes more) sing and play a mixture of instruments. The songs are great to sing along to, they'll transport you back into another time and world of tweed, peat, whiskey and wild seas.
