November 14th - Frank Burkitt and Kara Filbey
Great songs - great harmonies - great stories.
Scottish born FRANK BURKITT (vocals, guitar) and his long-time partner KARA FILBEY (vocals, flute), typically perform as one half of the Frank Burkitt Band, (which has toured NZ extensively over the past 3 years), but on this occasion, will treat us to an evening of intimate entertainment with great songs & harmonies, laced with Frank’s entertaining anecdotes, which will no doubt include some about their recent trip back to Scotland.
Frank’s original songs are inspired by a mix of American roots genres such as jazz, blues, folk, swing, and soul - from artists such as The Wood Brothers, Pokey LaFarge, Tim O’Brien, and Nina Simone. Prior to relocating to Wellington, Frank released two albums, both of which feature Kara.
First half performers are;
East Side Jive; featuring - Tineke Snow, Jeremy WInter, Murray Costello
and specialy from the Mayfair crew; Dash and Vinnie
