Head over to Warner Theatre on Monday, October 14th, and rejoice in the dulcet sounds of folk singer/songwriter Frank Turner.

Frank recently released a new album (his eighth solo album) called No Man’s Land, dedicated to telling stories of 13 women whose lives have been overlooked. A 13-episode podcast, Tales from No Man’s Land, was also released in conjunction with the album. Some of those stories include a jazz-obsessed heiress who fought for France during WWII (Nica Rothschild), an Egyptian feminist activist (Huda Sha’arawi), a Byzantine princess (Kassiani), and a vaudeville star shot by an outlaw (Dora Hand), just to name a few. Some of the tracks have the structure and feel of Irish folk songs, telling epic tales.

Frank is from the UK, and has been performing solo since 2005, after the metal band he started with broke up. His current music may fit into the realms of folk, alt-country, acoustic rock, and other labels you may want to play with, but it’s smooth sounding, and speaks to history and focuses on the joy of finding exciting stories to tell and giving them new life in the songwriting.

His tour stop at the Warner Theatre will include a solo set, and then he will perform with The Sleeping Souls and Kayleigh Goldsworthy in an unplugged performance suited for a seated audience.

Get your tickets here.

Tickets are $35. Doors open at Warner Theatre at 6pm. Show at 7pm. Joining are The Sleeping Souls and Kayleigh Goldsworthy.
