Billy Bragg

Being summoned for a backstage interview with Billy Bragg – one of the very few he would do during his stint in Seattle for Bumbershoot 2010 – we didn’t know quite what to expect.

The old school, outspoken British punk-folk rocker might just as well crack a beer bottle over our heads as answer any of our questions.

But as it turned out, he was one wonderfully charming – though still outspoken – and one of our favorite meet-ups of the Bumbershoot weekend.
