It’s no secret that folk kingpin Woody Guthrie is a songwriter that Billy Bragg holds quite dear to his heart. Most fans have already heard his moving interpretations of Woody’s words through his collaboration with Wilco on the Mermaid Avenue albums, and we can’t wait to hear the songs performed live. Billy will be in Madison for Woody’s posthumous 1ooth birthday celebration at the Barrymore on Tuesday, July 10 and we want to see you there!
Read on to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show as well as a copy of Mermaid Avenue: Deluxe Edition, courtesy of the always awesome folks at MadCity Music Exchange.
