Vyvienne Long (Ire) and Frank Burkitt (NZ/Scot)

Vyvienne Long and Frank Burkitt are embarking on a tour of Ireland in November 2019, performing their original songs on cello, guitar and voice.

Vyvienne is admired as a compelling vocalist and songwriter of incisive wit. Critics have drawn comparisons with Björk, Tori Amos and Joanna Newsome.

Having recently been awarded the Vodafone NZ Music Award for Best Folk Artist 2019, Frank is bringing his anecdotes and intelligently crafted songs to the European stage.

‘If you were to look for reference points to compare this music with, you might end up with Boz Scaggs, later James Taylor, Martin Stephenson, and maybe Tim O’Brien. It has a touch of class.’

‘Her music is extravagantly baroque, as if fished from the subconscious of Tim Burton or Edward Gorey’
