The gloriously unpretentious Billy Bragg is to his home country, England, what Pete Seeger is to the United States. He’s most famous over here for his Woody Guthrie collaborations with Wilco, but his massive folk-punk protest-song catalog is one to delve deeply into; expect to hear from across the board at this two-night run.
