Billy Bragg & Joe Henry - November / January UK tour dates

Bragg Henry

Billy Bragg and Joe Henry will tour the UK in November in support of the upcoming album on Cooking Vinyl 'Shine A Light' which we featured recently at Red Guitar Music. The duo have a new video from the album available which is a terrific version of the Jean Ritchie tune 'The L&N Don't Stop Here Anymore'. For more about the album, the video and those dates please read on.

Billy Bragg and Joe Henry most recently worked together when Henry produced Bragg's acclaimed 2013 album Tooth & Nail. The duo will tour the UK together later this year, performing songs from Shine A Light’ and more. Full tour details are as follows:
