Coming Attractions

The Frank Burkitt Band & Adam McGrath All coming attractions

Sunday 15th April 2018 - 3pm


An amazing double bill for a Sunday afternoon. Christchurch will be treated by the American Roots music of The Frank Burkitt Band as well as the road hardened, NZ folk songs of local legend Adam McGrath (THE EASTERN)

Inspired by artists such as Pokey Lafarge, Van Morrison, Billy Joel and The Wood Brothers, The Frank Burkitt Band play high energy, original music written by Burkitt and arranged by the band. They embark on their debut tour of Australia in March, before returning to NZ in April to promote their new album Raconteur (released 9th March).

Playing from Wellington to Auckland and everywhere in between, the Raconteur tour will be the first time since 2016 audiences will get to experience The Frank Burkitt Band’s unique on stage act. The four-piece band can’t be pinned to just one genre; their matchless sound spans many musical varieties creating an aural feast for their audiences.

Raconteur is an album filled with truly wonderful moments indicative of Burkitt’s ability to not only convey profound messages but entertaining anecdotes in his songs and they cannot wait to bring the album to life on stage around New Zealand.

“Touring New Zealand is one of the best things a musician like me can do. Great venues, beautiful locations and audiences who love good song-writing. I have made so many great friends whilst touring in the past and can’t wait to make some new ones this time around. Can’t wait to unleash Raconteur to the world too. ”
