Green Man secure Bragging rights
Green Man is delighted to reveal the fantastic Beirut and songwriting legend Billy Bragg will be joining The Flaming Lips on the incredible line-up for 2010. Beirut – aka US musical magpie Zach Condon, returned to his New Mexican roots with Beirut's last release March of the Zapotec in February 2009. The double EP followed 2007’s mini masterpiece The Flying Cup Club and features foot-tapping Latin American folk with backing from a Mexican funeral band and an explosive set of bedroom-produced electro synth-pop shenanigans.
Joining Beirut in the beautiful Brecon Beacons is the ultimate man of the people, punk poet and modern day folk hero Billy Bragg, he has spent the best part of three decades fighting the good fight, socking it to the man and giving a voice to those people who can’t get heard loud enough themselves. Few performers can match his ability to connect with his audience – whatever the size – so we thought it was high time the Bard of Barking had a Green Manmoment all of his own.
