Billy Bragg: Back to Basics

Songs from Life's A Riot, Brewing Up, and Taxman

4544 N Lincoln Ave · Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall · 773.728.6000

  • Billy Bragg has been weaving folk and punk with protest music since the late '70s with his deep love for American folk and social activism always at the forefront. He is a master songwriter with a romantic streak paired with his consistent and current social commentary. His most recent recording venture finds Bragg performing live takes on train platforms across America. The songs and journey celebrate Americana and are filled with mythic poetry and the metaphoric romance inherent in train songs. But it's the vitality in the performances that keeps the songs current.
