    Aug 3, 2011 Frank Turner - I Am Disappeared, from the new album, "England Keep My Bones."

Folky punk singer-songwriter Frank Turner can easily be compared to Billy Bragg - a mix of rebellious punk with articulate songwriting. Initially part of a post-hardcore band called "Million Dead," Frank Turner has taken those influences and combined them with the acoustic guitar.

He's snuck that acoustic guitar across the border into China for a tour - some of the first punk rock many of the citizens had seen. Now touring with a band, he's able to fill out his sound with more rock and less acoustic.

Songs performed: "Wessex Boy," "Peggy Sang the Blues" and "Magazines" (Hold Steady cover).
