Frank Burkitt Band and Kim Bonnington
The Frank Burkitt Band return to Nelson to perform their original brand of American roots music coupled with Frank’s rambling anecdotes. They will be joined by the amazing Kim Bonnington, one of NZ’s most established female country singers who will perform a set to kick things off!
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). Watch them at www.frankburkitt.co.nz/videos
Kim Bonnington has firmly established herself in the Wellington folk and country music scene as the girl with the golden country voice. Reared on a solid diet of Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard and Gram Parsons, Kim’s roots are firmly planted in traditional country music, the country rock of the 1970s and the neo-traditional 1980s.
