BILLY BRAGG

Billy Bragg was recently described by The Times newspaper as a "national treasure." In the two decades of his career Bragg has certainly made an indelible mark on the conscience of British music, becoming perhaps the most stalwart guardian of the radical dissenting tradition that stretches back over centuries of the country's political, cultural and social history. It's a legacy that's brought Bragg fans the world over as an artist with a keen sense of political activism as well as a way with a pop hook, all informed with a sense of humanity and humour.

 

Supporting Bragg will be Kim Churchill. Kim's style is explosive, with intricate fingerpicking, percussive beats on the body of the guitar, and two-handed tapping intertwined with an earthy stomp box, powerful harmonica melodies and soulful voice. His songwriting reflects his coastal lifestyle - growing up on the East Coast of Australia, with the surf at his front door - and his new nomadic life on the road.
