The Free at Noon set for Friday, May 15 will feature Billy Bragg, Calexico and Brian Wilson.
English singer-songwriter Billy Bragg started to tackle political issues with progressive folk in the 1980s, and with more than a dozen albums released since then, he's made a name for himself as not just a leading musician, but a leading grassroots activist.
Calexico, spearheaded by Joey Burns and John Convertino, is a powerhouse live with a variety of instruments allowing for an intricate country/folk sound. They just released their latest album, Edge of the Sun, in April.
Last but not least, this week's Free at Noon will feature pop musical mastermind Brian Wilson. April's No Pier Pressure marks his eleventh solo album release. You can join us for by RSVPing or tune in live at 88.5 FM.
