Frank Turner in conversation
English folk/punk singer-songwriter Frank Turner is set to take part in a public conversation with author/journalist Ian Winwood at the Bridgewater Hall, where he will also read extracts from his new book The Road Beneath My Feet and take questions from the audience as well as throwing in a few songs from his extensive catalogue.
With five solo albums under his belt, he has played thousands of shows across 38 counties and was the lead singer of post-hardcore band Million Dead, before he embarked on a solo career with his band The Sleeping Souls.
In what was a dramatic turnaround for the artist – on 23rd September 2005 it all looked to be over when he played his final gig with Million Dead at the Joiners Arms in Southampton. The tour laminates simply read ‘get a job’. He was deflated and jaded, returning to his hometown of Winchester with no plan.
But that was not the end after all. More than a thousand shows later he sold out Wembley Arena on 13th April 2012.
The Road Beneath My Feet is his brutally honest story, his tour reminiscences, telling everything about living on the road, from the drug-fuelled house parties, grimy clubs and sleeping on the floor to having a pack out arena singing band every word of his songs.
Frank Turner in Conversation takes place at The Bridgewater Hall on Friday 27th March 2015. Tickets priced £22.
