You have got to love Billy Bragg! He has never forgotten his roots and he remains one of the last bastions of reasoning and clear thought that exists in our music world. Bragg is currently touring Australia and played at WOMADelaide but every time he visits our shores, he always takes time out of his busy schedule to meet his fans appearing at book launches at Readings, like he did on his last tour or speak and perform at the unions. Today he appeared at the 'We Are Union' campaign launch at the Victorian Trades Hall Council. Billy spoke and performed a couple of songs. This weekend in Sydney, Bragg will perform at the Sydney leg of the March In March protests. Bragg, who has arguably written some of the best protest songs in contemporary music, has signed on to perform two songs at the event in Belmore Park in Haymarket. GOOD ONYA BILLY!
