Frank Turner’s gathering at The Troubadour.
The 3rd of December, a roar was heard at the Troubadour on Old Brompton Road.
There, to mark the beginning of the next thrilling musical season and to break the venue’s long silence was none other than Frank Turner, the renowned English punk and folk artist.
Turner’s breath-taking performance was cherished by the lucky few, who managed to grab the limited tickets for the socially distant event. They were joined by the many other fans who enjoyed the performance via Live Stream – available online for the following 24hrs.
Sponsored by Fightback Lager, the profits of the event were dedicated to the Music Venue Trust’s Red List campaign – supporting grassroot venues facing closure all over the country, due to the ongoing pandemic. Within the venue’s cosy and vibrant atmosphere, the fans participated lively and improvised dances.
Frank Turner’s astonishing performance saw him playing solos and collaborating with Matt Nasir. The English multi-instrument musician joined Turner’s guitar with his mandolin forming a dynamic duo. While playing some of the classics, they also introduced the new album – offering the audience an exclusive peak at the latest works.
During the performance, the warm and intimate environment encouraged a friendly conversation between both performers and audience alike.
Once it was over a sigh of relief was in the air, live music was back and here to stay.
