Billy Bragg

PNCA+FIVE Idea Studios Lecture and Performance

PNCA is pleased to announce a very special PNCA+FIVE Idea Studio featuring an intimate evening of conversation and music by esteemed artist and activist Billy Bragg.

Billy Bragg will participate in a conversation with writer Barry Sanders on creative practice followed by a performance as part of a larger tour in support of the release of his 11th album, entitled Mr Love and Justice. PNCA thanks board member Thomas Shipley for his generous support of this event.

Billy Bragg, dubbed a national treasure by The Times in his native Britain, has been performing and recording music for over 25 years. During that time, he has traveled the world, recorded hit singles, composed top ten albums, penned political anthems, sung at rallies, kept alive traditional English folk songs and put his own spin on Americas folk catalog.

PNCA+FIVE Idea Studios are an ongoing and portable series of conversations, lectures and performances on the inner workings of creative practice. The series features internationally acclaimed practitioners from a range of fields and cultures as part of a broader PNCA+FIVE effort to highlight the importance of creativity in fostering innovation and civic imagination.
