Another Chance to See Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls

September 28th, 2012

Following the breakup of a band in 2005, English singer-songwriter Frank Turner left behind punk for the world of acoustic folk. It was a move that paid off: He made several acclaimed albums and EPs and found success in being a troubadour. But, it seems, Turner still liked to get loud, and backed by the Sleeping Souls—Tarrant Anderson (bass), Ben Lloyd (guitar), Matt Nasir (piano) and Nigel Powell (drums)—he began playing full-band shows with a bigger, rock-inflected sound. That sound is best appreciated live and in person, which you can do when Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls (above, performing three songs for BBC Alba) play Webster Hall on Saturday. (Sunday’s show is sold out.)
