Lees and West present Billy Bragg

Lees and West present Billy Bragg

The Bard of Barking will turn 50 before he reaches our shores this summer - but the fire burns more brightly than ever. Moving an audience and improving the world (his latest initiative, Jail Guitar Doors, brings music and meaning to inmates) remain his top priorities. The man who sang of a New England has a new lease on life. Be re-inspired by BILLY BRAGG at his two intimate shows leading up to the Big Day Out 2008.
