Frank Burkitt (Scotland/NZ)

July 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Scottish Singer Songwriter brings his original Scottish folk and Americana songs to Roy’s Towne Pub in Royston on Friday 12th July.

Scottish Songwriter Frank Burkitt cannot wait to perform a run of 10 shows across BC for what will be his debut tour of Canada in July 2019. Armed with just his guitar and voice, his show will be an intimate and personal showcase of his music.

He will charm you with his anecdotes and storytelling, before captivating you with intelligently written songs that are inspired by his love of American Roots and Scottish Folk music. He has been living in New Zealand for the past 5 years and formed The Frank Burkitt Band in Wellington where they recently were announced as the Vodafone NZ Music Award winners for Best Folk Artist 2019.

Frank is touring Canada as a solo artist however so this is a rare chance to hear his songs performed intimately and raw.

“If you were to look for reference points to compare this music with, you might end up with Boz Scaggs, later James Taylor, Martin Stephenson, and maybe Tim O’Brien. It has a touch of class.” Johnny Windle, Stirrings Magazine (UK), Dec 2018
