Event details: Singer-songwriter Frank Turner has recently undergone quite a transformation. After getting into heavy metal and buying a guitar, he formed punk band Million Dead in 2001. After two critically acclaimed albums the band split in 2005, with Frank deciding to pursue a solo career. As he was rediscovering the artists from his youth, such as Johnny Cash and Counting Crows, he found himself getting more into country and folk, and swapped his electric guitar for an acoustic.

He started touring and hasn't stopped since, clocking up around 350 shows across Europe and America. His debut album in 2007, 'Sleep Is For The Week', received great reviews and was shortlisted for the XFM New Music Award. The follow up, 'Love, Ire & Song', was released in March, and is starting to amass similarly great praise. His razor sharp observations, strong mix of love songs and anecdotes, and social commentaries have led him to be described as a "Billy Bragg for twenty-something punks".

A Junction & Green Mind Event in association with Cambridge Folk Festival.
