Billy Bragg

Wednesday, 19 October 2011 was a rather special day for me. A fan of Billy Bragg since the 1980s, I was able to sit down with him for a chat earlier that day, before he performed in the Set Theatre, Kilkenny.

Naturally we talked music and politics and I was pretty star struck to be honest. I went to the gig and took along my camera just in case. Some of the photos I took are at the bottom of this post and after his management company contacted me, I subsequently made them available through Billy Bragg's website press page

These images have been used by BBC Radio and BBC Media Centre and Guardian online as well as countless music festival websites around the world.

As it happened, my Billy Bragg photos have repeatedly turned up a number of years since 2011, which always amazes me considering how many new images of him must have been produced in the meantime. I began to list the publications on my LinkedIn page but found it difficult to track each one down over the years. Each time one appears online it's always a great surprise and pleasure to see.
