The voice of the people, the heart of the working man—British songwriter Billy Bragg has had enough championing titles thrown at him to fill a dozen caskets of ale. No singer on the British isles combines issues of justice and love so fluently, and in every hue of Bragg’s distinct voice and electric-guitar strum lies the weight of human kindness. Who else but Bragg could release an album called Talking with the Taxman About Poetry? Who else could have collaborated so elegantly with Wilco on unrecorded Woody Guthrie songs for Mermaid Avenue? Sit with a devout following and don’t miss the opener, Napa Valley native Sean Garvey, when Billy Bragg plays Friday, Oct. 29, at the Uptown Theatre. 1350 Third St., Napa. 8pm. $37–$47. 707.259.0123.
