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
