Andy M Review: Billy Bragg's 'Roots, Rockers & Radicals (13) Review: Billy Bragg's 'Roots, Rockers & Radicals' 02 Jan 19


Anyone else reading this wonderful Book? After seeing him present and talk about it at Sidmouth '18 I'm now well into Billy's book. As a 20something, though I preferred the folk clubs, I'd go to the Salutation Jazz Club in Birmingham. The connection between the two strands (folk & trad jazz) now make much more sense and I wish I remembered more about seeing and hearing Ken Colyer et al. I realise that the Colyer New Orleans idea linked to Leadbelly, Guthrie and what became 'skiffle' and seeded much of the folk revival, as far as guitars are concerned! I have new admiration for Chris Barber, Lonnie Donegan and more in this meticulously researched exploration of skiffle the main focus of the book.
