As we noted in yesterday’s Stars post, we haven’t been posting much because we were up in Alberta at the Calgary Folk Festival having a grand time. Most of the grandness came from hanging out with our old pal Frank Turner and blowing all of our souvenir money on booze. It was not all for naught however as we captured some sweet video of FTHC. Below are three vids. One from the main stage, one from his side stage appearance the next day and one from the back yard of some kids on the north side of Calgary who gave us a party and enough Pilsner and Jameson that we don’t remember any of their names. Good dudes and dudettes though.
In this first video Frank plays Long Live the Queen on the main stage.
This next video is of Frank’s side stage performance the next day, playing a brand new untitled song about England (the theme of that stage was all UK performers)
And finally, a video of Frank by citronella candle light, covering a short song by Half-Man/Half-Biscuit.
Frank Turner is a folk-punk singer-songwriter from Winchester, England. His latest album is entitled “Poetry of the Deed” and is available via Epitaph Records. He is almost always on tour, and you can find out when he’s coming to your hometown by visiting here.
