Billy Bragg burst onto the U.K. music scene in the mid-’80s, singing wickedly sharp, poignant political anthems like “Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards” and cofounding anti-Tory arts movement Red Wedge. Back then, he was dubbed the Bard of Barking, after his East London homestead. Thirty years on, Bragg has worked with Wilco, played a key part in celebrating Woody Guthrie’s centennial and made a family. Last year, he delivered his most personal work to date, Tooth & Nail. Expect to hear from across the board as he headlines at the Winery.
