Billy Bragg has been fighting Tooth & Nail for political causes and musicians rights for years now, but he also manages to bring music out on the road along with the message. Next up, he'll be hitting Canada's East Coast during a quick fall tour.
Bragg's summer schedule has him playing a handful of European festivals, but he will cross over to North America for a few weeks of dates. The trip starts off beneath the U.S./Canada border in Chicago, but the itinerary soon brings the songsmith up to the Maritimes, where he'll play to crowds in Fredericton, Charlottetown, Halifax and St. John's.
Joining Bragg on the North American dates will be Canadian artist Billy the Kid. You'll see the show details down below.
While Bragg's latest full-length was 2013's Tooth & Nail, he most recently unveiled a revamped and expanded version of Life's a Riot with Spy Vs Spy to celebrate the mini-album's 30th anniversary.
