Billy Bragg

Billy Bragg Coming to America

His website is currently buckling under the strain as U.S. fans rush to see if his upcoming tour will hit their city, but Billy Bragg is coming to the States.  He'll be at City Winery in New York on July 13th.

The tour coincides with the upcoming release of the Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions box set, covering the work that Bragg and Wilco did setting a group of Woody Guthrie-penned songs to music, later this month.  That set will include remastered versions of the first two Mermaid Avenue albums plus 17 previously unreleased tracks.

According to his Twitter feed, Bragg's concerts will feature a set of Mermaid Avenue songs, followed by a set of Bragg's own work.

CoolMom and I caught Billy during his last stop at City Winery, and I hope we can make it in July.
