Frank Turner at Aye Write
18th Mar 2019 • 6:30PM – 8:00PM • Mitchell Library
Folk-punk icon Frank Turner discusses his new book
Songwriter Frank Turner discusses his new book Try this at Home.
In Try This at Home, folk-punk icon Frank Turner explores his song-writing process by taking apart 36 songs from his back catalogue.
Find out the stories behind the songs forged in the hedonistic years of the mid-2000s, the ones perfected in Nashville studios, and everything in between. Some of these songs arrive fully-formed, as if they’ve always been there, some take graft and endless reworking. In exploring them all, Turner reflects with eloquence, insight and self-deprecating wit on exactly what it is to be a song-writer.
Frank brings the book to life with a few songs on his guitar, and is in conversation with Ian Winwood, author of Smash!: Green Day, The Offspring, Bad Religion, NOFX, and the ’90s Punk Explosion.
Tickets: Ticket Price £25 (including a copy of the book), subsequent tickets can be purchased for £10 (no book).
