with:

Billy Bragg

billy_bragg.jpgDescribed by The Times as a 'National Treasure', Billy Bragg's brand of socially and politically aware punk-folk has made a remarkable dent in the British conscience and made his name as one of Britain's most popular and out-spoken singer/songwriters. Drawing on the folk tradition of protest song, and the punk sensibilities of direct action, Billy Bragg has made a name for himself as an accomplished and inspirational musician, and as a charged and pro-active activist.

Grace Petrie

grace-petrie-header.jpgA great Leicester acoustic singer-songwriter, counting Billy Bragg amongst her fan base. She writes indie folk rock songs (a couple with an acoustic punk twist), plays the guitar and sings with a voice that has been described by listeners as similar to Laura Marling, Kate Nash and nothing you’ve ever heard before.

Special guests:

The Farm and Manchester's very own Honey Feet!
