Thursday 05 December 2013
EXETER Great Hall
Winner of the ‘Roots Award’ at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, singer-songwriter Billy Bragg releases his first new studio album in five years Tooth & Nail on March 18 2013 and has announced a UK tour with his band, including a date at Exeter’s Great Hall in December.
Drawing on personal rather than political themes, Tooth & Nail was recorded over a whirlwind five-day session with Grammy Award winning producer Joe Henry (whose impeccable production credits include Solomon Burke, Aimee Mann, Elvis Costello and Hugh Laurie) in his South Pasadena basement studio. With Joe taking Billy out of his comfort zone (all vocals were recorded live without retakes or overdubs) the album features an accomplished crew of musicians.
Permanently active beyond music and consistently playing to audiences around the world, this period also saw Billy establish the Jail Guitar Doors initiative and lend support to numerous causes including the anti-fascist campaign Hope Not Hate and the Occupy Movement. In 2010, he began to curate the Left Field at Glastonbury Festival, with the aim of highlighting new political artists. He recently delivered the 2012 John Peel Lecture.
