Swinging Saturdays #59: Frank Turner Spotlight

Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.

I threw all my plans for Swinging Saturdays this week right out of the window and decided to do an entirely different top 10 then I had initially in mind, I was actually going to discuss my musical highlights of 2015. The reason I decided not to post that top 10 was something I shared on Facebook awhile ago:
"That moment you hear a song after being at their concert recently... and thinking back at just how awesome they were live!"
Begin January, I went to Frank Turner, with a friend and colleague how actually also gotten me to listen to Frank Turner. So thank you for the great music suggestion! It was freaking awesome, that man has THE VOICE, you want to listen to all day long. Also, a pleasure to look at I might add.

Damn this concert was perfect, flawless and very energetic. Man and guitar, is all I need and was given. Sometimes he was just that, a man with a guitar and a great voice without The Sleeping Souls (his band). That was something different, I like it that he played these solo's as well as with the band. Acoustic songs and punkish rockish folk songs they all had there place.

Anyways without further ado Frank Turner people!
