Product notities

Born and raised in the Scottish Highlands, Frank Burkitt started his musical career paying tribute to the legendary Frank Sinatra with the Inverness based 'Root-Ma-Toot Big Band'. After moving to Edinburgh however, Frank adopted 'The Royal Oak' as his local. Soon after, he swapped the Big Bands for the Sessions, the 'Jack Daniels' for the 'Laphroaig' and began immersing himself in Edinburgh's vibrant Folk music scene. After being bowled over by the stories, the honesty and the emotion (not to mention the music) of the scene - he soon realized that his songwriting must pay homage to this fantastic genre. Since his conversion to Folk, Frank has written a catalogue of songs in his inimitable contemporary folk style. Frank credits the likes of 'Flook', 'Tim O'Brien' and 'James Taylor' amongst his biggest influences, though he still clings unabashedly to hints of his swing roots. Featuring Chris Stone (Fiddle), Holly Downes (Double Bass), Chris Silver (Bouzouki) and Kara Filbey (Vocals). The songs were arranged by the band as a whole. Chris Stone's virtuosic talents on the fiddle lend a fantastic melodic depth to this album and Holly Downes backs that up with sonorous bass harmonies. The band embarked on a couple of "mini tours" around Scotland in 2007 and 2008. In May/April 2009, Frank was joined once again by Stone and Downes on a tour of New Zealand and South Australia before returning to continue his 2009 summer tour of the UK. "Centrally, they also [Burkitt's songs] revealed his sure-handed melodic facility, allied to skilful wordcraft and an attractive voice, whose understated balance of softness and sinew variously recalled James Taylor, Josh Ritter and Dougie MacLean..... His performance affirmed him as a singularly promising talent" Sue Wilson- The Scotsman.
