Double Bill Concert:
The Frank Burkitt Band
Frank is a storyteller, songwriter, singer and guitarist. In that order. His rambling anecdotes aim to give the audience more of a connection with his songs. After years performing solo, he formed his incredible backing band when he relocated to Wellington from Edinburgh. The Frank Burkitt Band play original music inspired by jazz, blues, folk, swing, soul and all things American Roots. A string band that have become popular throughout New Zealand thanks to their entertaining performances, strong musicianship and fantastic song-writing.
Albi & The Wolves
is comprised of Chris Dent (Albi), Pascal Roggen and Micheal Young who play acoustic guitar, electric violin and double bass respectively. Their performances are dynamic and their style is possibly the most soulful folk made in New Zealand. Each performance, be it a foot stomping bar or a theater, is laced with humor that translates from the banter to the music itself.
