Billy Bragg at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 2009

Billy Bragg played this year's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in Golden Gate Park. This was my first time seeing him, and he put on one hell of a show. I found myself going back to some of his recorded material that had put me off. If you're like me, and prefer his recorded stuff without a band accompaniment, then you will find a whole new appreciation for songs like "I Keep Faith" and "Greetings to the New Brunette" when its just Billy and a guitar.

Here are some decent quality live tracks from that performance:

No Power Without Accountability

Sing Their Souls Back Home

Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards
