Billy Bragg
Epi Masterbilt Century Fan Billy Bragg will tour the U.S. next year with residencies in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Chicago, Seattle, and New York City.  Don't miss one of our era's great songwriters and performers in action. Read our classic interview and check out Mr. Bragg's tour de force performance of  "New England"--an Epiphone exclusive--shortly after receiving his new Masterbilt Century Olympic

“It was a real great addition to the Shine A Light tour,” Bragg told Epiphone. “I was initially only going to use my J-45 acoustic for the whole show, including my solo spot, which would have limited me to my more ballady songs. The compact size of the Olympic gives it a little more bite and the neck seems faster. I just felt like I was wielding something with more kinetic power than an ordinary acoustic, which really helped on the BB songs."

Billy Bragg has announced “One Step Forward. Two Steps Back.”, a career retrospective concert series set to take place in seven US cities in 2019. In each city, Bragg will perform three unique shows over as many nights. The first performance will feature Bragg’s current career-spanning set, which ranges across his 35-year catalog. The second night will see Bragg perform songs from his first three albums: 1983’s Life’s a Riot with Spy Vs Spy, 1984’s Brewing Up with Billy Bragg, and 1986’s Talking with the Taxman about Poetry. For the third and final night, Bragg will wax nostalgic with songs from his second three albums: 1988’s Workers Playtime, 1991’s Don’t Try This at Home, and 1996’s William Bloke.
