Aye Write 2019: Songwriter Frank Turner will discuss his new book 'Try this at Home' at the Mitchell Library on March 18th!

About Frank Turner

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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Frank Turner are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
