All the way from New Zealand (via Scotland) The Frank Burkitt Band will play Folk in the Foyer, Bromyard tomorrow, Friday, June 14.

Following four months of shows in the antipodes, where they were announced as winners of the Vodafone NZ Music Award for Best Folk Artist 2019, the band come to Bromyard as part of their six week tour of the UK.

Frank Burkitt is really looking forward to playing Folk in the Foyer: “As a band we’re really looking forward to playing our debut show in Bromyard this June. Since releasing our album Raconteur at the end of 2018, we’ve been playing to audiences across Australia and New Zealand where we’ve been blown away by the positive response our new material has received from fans old and new.”

The band promise a set of American roots music infused with folk, blues, country and a sprinkling of swing. Unique and profound songwriting arranged with precision and creativity, and the addition of Frank’s rambling anecdotes.

They will be joined on their travels by Becka Wolfe who will be adding sumptuous fiddle and vocal harmony to the band’s songs as well as singing her own songs in Arabic, French and English.

Originally from Edinburgh, Frank Burkitt and lifelong partner Kara Filbey swapped a life of late-night music and Scottish pubs for Wellington, New Zealand in 2014. After placing an ad for a double bass player on a noticeboard in the NZ School of Music, James Geluk (double bass) answered the call followed swiftly by Cameron Burnell (mandolin, tenor banjo, vocals) and The Frank Burkitt Band was born.

Catch the band in Bromyard tomorrow at 7.30pm. To book, call the box office on 01885 488575 or visit
