I’ve loved Billy Bragg for a long time – loving his early ‘man-and-a-guitar’ songs, moving into his pop phase, seeing him back in London in the late 80s, his semi-rancorous collaborations with Wilco, watching him put the audience in stitches in Battery Park a few summers ago….
So I’m glad to see England’s finest troubadour out and about. His tour dates are selling out (he’s in NYC next week).
For the Records has a great piece on Billy’s appearance in Toronto last week. Nice pics, links to sessions, news on Billy to appear on Conan tonight and much more.
