Troubadors and songsmiths Billy Bragg and Joe Henry are hitting the road together for the Shine A Light Tour.

And they will be calling at the Engine Shed in Lincoln on November 19.

Billy Bragg is an English singer-songwriter and left-wing activist who’s music blends elements of folk, punk and protest songs, with lyrics that mostly span political or romantic themes.

Joe Henry is an American singer-songwriter influenced by folk, blues, jazz, rock and country who, as well as his own work, has produced Grammy-nominated albums for other artists.

In March, Billy and Joe, boarded a Los Angeles-bound train at Chicago’s Union Station looking to reconnect with the culture of railroad travel and the music it inspired.

Winding along 2,728 miles of track over four days, the pair recorded classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train paused to pick up passengers.

On the Shine A Light tour, they’ll be playing songs from the journey, along with favourites from their own critically-acclaimed back catalogues.

Tickets for their Lincoln gig are £22 and available now at www.musicglue.com.
