TICKETS are now on sale for Frank Turner’s highly-anticipated return to Dunfermline.

The singer-songwriter has announced a nine-date tour with the Alhambra Theatre the only Scottish venue on his winter run.

The tour dates will see Turner put a new twist on his formidable live set-up ahead of his forthcoming eighth album No Man’s Land.

Featuring an all-female cast of musicians, the record is dedicated to “the fascinating stories of women whose incredible lives have all too often been overlooked by dint of their gender”.

Turner said: “For this tour, I thought it would be good to give the new album some proper attention, so the first set of mine of the night will be a solo run through some of those songs and stories; once the Sleeping Souls (his backing band) are up with me, we’re playing around with a slightly more stripped back, thoughtful folk approach to some of the older material, which feels different and powerful.

“Looking forward to sharing a slightly different show with everyone for this run.”

The women featured on No Man’s Land come from across wide geographical and historical lines.

They include Byzantine princess Kassiani (The Hymn of Kassiani), Egyptian feminist activist Huda Sha’arawi (The Lioness), and Resusci Anne (Rescue Annie) an apocryphal drowned virgin whose face was used as the model for the medical CPR mannequin across the world.

There’s the serial killer from the Deep South who plucked her victims from lonely hearts pages (Nannie Doss), the jazz-obsessed heiress who fought for the Free French (Nica Rothschild) and a rowdy coach house landlady from 17th century Camden Town accused of witchcraft (Jinny Bingham).

“It’s bringing together my two main interests in life, which have always been separate from each other – history and songwriting,” explains Turner..

No Man’s Land is out on August 16 and Turner takes to the Alhambra stage on Friday, November 22. Tickets are on sale via the box office and website.
