    Frank Burkitt Band 4 April at Nest on Australian Tour

    The Frank Burkitt Band are gathering their instruments and hopping over the ditch from their New Zealand home for a 17 date tour across Victoria and New South Wales. Following on from the success of their March 2018 Australian tour in support of their second album Raconteur, this tour will support their new live EP Lost But Alive (out 30th Dec). 


    “The sincerity and heart that emanates from his song-writing is endearing, to say the least. I believe people who are truly great at their craft make what they do seem easy”
    Janise Kumar - muzic.net.nz

    Starting at Yackandandah Folk Festival, they will perform in Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle and Tumbarumba

    Touring this time as a trio with vocals, guitar, mandolin and double bass, they will perform original songs spanning a wide range of genres such as Americana, swing, blues and folk. 

    SHOWTIME

    Thursday 4 April 7pm

    Tickets $35 include intermission supper - book here

    Pre-drinks, canapes, dinner or whisky nips are available from 5.30pm. Call 69482950 to book. 

    Frank’s songs often come with anecdotes and his rambling but entertaining introductions give audiences a back story to each song. Subject matters such as philosophy, space travel, nature, relationships, haircuts and colourful characters from Frank’s past are all delivered within expertly crafted arrangements, performed by fantastic musicians. 

    Frank Burkitt (vocals, guitar), Cameron Burnell (mandolin, lapsteel), James Geluk (double bass)
