If social conscience is the glue that binds punk and folk, then Billy Bragg is that adhesive brought to life. Equal parts Woody Guthrie and Joe Strummer, Bragg’s ragged folk anthems have always been squarely on the side of the underdog, punching up with an eternally potent mix of righteous fury, laser-guided wit and romanticism.

Billy Bragg has announced that he will tour the 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 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 next autumn.”
