On September 23, Billy Bragg and Joe Henry will release an incredibly unique project titled Shine A Light – Field Recording From The Great American Railroad. The album features songs by Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams, Lead Belly and other greats and was recorded over four days on a train across America.
The duo will support the record with a UK tour in November and US tour in Sep/Oct. More info here – and no doubt, much more information to come. Very exciting news!
UDPATE II: US tour as well, and full website is live as well.
