Thu 21 Mar, Westlands Main Hall
Waterstones and Westlands are very excited to welcome Frank Turner to Yeovil for this intimate evening to talk about his memoir Try This at Home, he'll also be performing a few of his hits!
Taking 36 songs from his back catalogue, Frank explores his songwriting process. Find out the stories behind the songs forged in the hedonistic years of the mid-2000s North London scene, 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 to find ‘the one’. In exploring them all, Turner reflects with eloquence, insight and self-deprecating wit on exactly what it is to be a songwriter.
From love songs and break-up songs to political calls-to-arms; songs composed alone in a hotel room or in soundcheck with the Sleeping Souls, this brilliantly written memoir - featuring exclusive photos of handwritten lyrics and more - is a must-have book for Frank Turner fans, as well as anyone curious about how to write music.
Frank will be interiewed on stage by journalist Ian Winwood. Ian also has a book coming out soon! For more information click here.
Tickets: £25 (Tickets include a copy of the Frank Turners book Try This at Home).
