NEW EVENT - Live in Concert
|Location:||Fremantle Arts Centre
1 Finnerty Street
We are very chuffed to announce that BILLY BRAGG - orator, musician, entertainer, rabble-rouser, activist, negotiator, pamphleteer, the fabled ‘big-nosed bard from Barking’ – is making the trip to Western Australia in April 2017 to perform at Fremantle Arts Centre. Billy always has something to say and something to sing about and 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), he refuses to slip into the dotage of self-parody. Across three and a bit decades performing there have been numerous milestones and waystations years for Billy, political and personal, including going topping the singles chart, having a street named after him, being mentioned in Bob Dylan’s memoir and meeting the Queen and he was recently named Trailblazer of the Year at the Americana Music Association UK Awards in February 2016 and the Spirit of Americana/Free Speech in Music at the Americana Music Awards in September 2016.
