BILLY BRAGG - ROOTS, RADICALS AND ROCKERS BOOK LAUNCH
In conversation with Bob Harris, plus book signing
‘The story of the first DIY revolution: a perfect mix of author and subject’ – Jon Savage
Against a backdrop of Cold War politics, rock and roll riots and a newly assertive generation of working-class youth, the songwriter and political activist Billy Bragg charts the history, impact and legacy of skiffle - Britain’s first indigenous pop movement.
Roots, Radicals & Rockers: How Skiffle Changed the World is the first book to explore this phenomenon in depth – a meticulously researched and joyous account that explains how skiffle sparked a revolution that shaped pop music as we have come to know it.
