FRESH from performing at Glastonbury festival, Billy Bragg will be taking to the stage at Cardigan Castle on Wednesday, July 24.

A fearless recording artist, tireless live performer and peerless political campaigner for more than 35 years, Billy Bragg was honoured with the PRS Outstanding Contribution to British Music award at the Ivor Novello awards in 2018 and is regarded as a valuable statesman.

The intervening three-and-a-half decades have been marked by a number one hit single, having a street named after him, being the subject of a South Bank Show, appearing on stage at Wembley Stadium, curating Leftfield at Glastonbury, sharing spotted dick with a Cabinet minister in the House of Commons cafeteria, being mentioned in Bob Dylan’s memoir, writing two non-fiction books (the second, Roots, Radicals & Rockers, was shortlisted for the Penderyn Music Book award) and meeting the Queen.

His music blends elements of folk music, punk rock and protest songs, with lyrics that mostly span political or romantic themes. His music is heavily centred on bringing about change and involving the younger generation in activist causes.

“A true troubadour himself, Bragg’s ‘heart on his sleeve’ candidness and advocacy has inspired countless legions of musicians and activists for well over three decades,” says’ Inner Edge Music.

“Billy Bragg has this aura and stage presence that is such that you cannot help but listen to everything this guy says on the stage,” writes Buzz Magazine
