Born and raised in the Scottish Highlands, Frank Burkitt has been writing songs and performing for over 10 years now. Frank has an unrivalled ability to effortlessly churn out classic Folk songs. Since moving to Edinburgh, Frank has completed a degree in Acting from Queen Margaret University – he is indeed, more than just a singer/songwriter, but an all round performer. Heavily influenced by the Edinburgh Folk scene, he combines the traditional Scottish sound with his own inimitable blues style. His repertoire varies from anti war ballads such as ‘Military Band’, to energetic love songs like ‘Safe and Sound’ and ‘Glory Be’. His tributes to Edinburgh’s “real” pubs such as ‘Old Timer’, ‘Murphy’ and ‘A Fine Drink’ are a nod in the direction of the drinking dens which have inspired his music – Edinburgh’s ‘Royal Oak’ and ‘Sandy Bells’. Frank is an acoustic musician with a big sound.
The evening opens with a set of songs/tunes from Ian Bartlett.
