With the success of Mumford and Sons, and folk in general, when I run across an English folk musician, I give it a thorough listen.  Frank Turner is an English folk singer and songwriter, with some undertones of punk and alternative.  He was the singer in a hardcore punk band called “Million Dead”. He embarked on a solo career when the band split up in 2005.   Since the break up, he has recorded 4 EP’s and 4 albums.  His most recent album is called “England, Keep My Bones” which was released in June of 2011.  The cut I have added here is “If I Ever Stray”, his most recent single release off the album (August 29, 2011).   A very enjoyable video.
