Billy Bragg will be touring UK and Ireland in Autumn 2021. Billy previously toured the UK/Ireland on his epic ‘One Step Forward, Two Steps Back’ tour in 2019.
Says Billy (in late 2020): “In these challenging times, we all need something to hang on to. Like everyone else, my plans for 2020 have been disrupted by the pandemic, but today I’m announcing an extensive UK & Irish tour for this time next year to give me something tangible to work towards. My hope is that, by then, we’ll be able to get together again and enjoy the uplift that live music brings, to audience and performer alike. Hope to see you in next Autumn.”
Described by The Times as a 'National Treasure', Billy Bragg's brand of socially and politically aware punk-folk has made a remarkable dent in the British conscience and made his name as one of Britain's most popular and out-spoken singer/songwriters. Drawing on the folk tradition of protest song, and the punk sensibilities of direct action, Billy Bragg has made a name for himself as an accomplished and inspirational musician, and as a charged and pro-active activist. At their best, Billy’s songs present ‘the perfect Venn diagram between the political and the personal’ (the Guardian)
