Billy Bragg celebrates Woody Guthrie’s centenary with a concert that draws from the Grammy nominated Mermaid Avenue albums.

Playing acoustic instruments and singing from Woody’s manuscripts, Billy aims to add another dimension to the Dust Bowl balladeer who inspired Bob Dylan.

"To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Woody’s birth I will be doing a number of shows which will focus on the legacy of Woody Guthrie as expressed through the Mermaid Avenue songs. I’ll be playing acoustic instruments and singing from the book of lyrics which I compiled from the archives and used during the sessions, quoting from Woody’s handwritten notes that are often tagged onto the manuscripts."
