Folk in the Foyer (Hosted by MC and artiste in residence Roger Pugh)
The Frank Burkitt Band with Becka Wolfe
All the way from New Zealand (via Scotland) The Frank Burkitt Band are delighted to be performing at Folk in The Foyer as part of their debut “Lost But Alive’ UK Tour.
Following on from 4 months of shows in the antipodes, the band will be travelling around the country for 6 weeks to as far north as Inverness and as far south as Falmouth. They will be joined on their travels by the enchanting Becka Wolfe who will be adding sumptuous fiddle and vocal harmony to the the band’s songs as well as singing her own songs in Arabic, French and English.
A set with the band can be described as American roots music infused with folk, blues, country and a sprinkling of swing. Unique and profound songwriting, arranged with precision and creativity. A true genre spanning performance awaits. Add to that Frank’s rambling anecdotes that accompany his songs and you are in for a special night that will both move and entertain Supported by One Achord
