Billy Bragg

Billy Bragg is many things.

Known for his political ‘bashed out punk rock’ style, after 13 studio albums, eight compilations, two box sets, and countless tours across countless international borders, the elder statesman of today, bearded and ‘ruggedly handsome’ (according to one Facebook fan), refuses to slip into the dotage of self-parody.

For every protest song, there is a declaration of love. Mixing pop and politics is a tall order, but where there’s a starting block, there’s a great leap forward.

We’re honoured to have Billy join us as our Saturday headliner in the outstandingly beautiful Wakefield Cathedral.
