Billy Bragg's 'Breaking Rocks' at Proud Camden, October 1st 2009
Diaries out as Billy Bragg is at it again!
The self-proclaimed 'one-man political rock star' is to make a grandiose appearance at Proud Camden next month, accompanied with a few notable friends, including Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett, Wayne Kramer of the MC5, as well as Mick Jones with the Rotten Hill Gang, to mark the release of his 'Jail Guitar Doors' project documentary, 'Breaking Rocks', which will premiere at the venue on October 1st.
Directed by Alan Miles, 'Breaking Rocks', has just been nominated for this year's Raindance festival , and documents Bragg's Jail Guitar Doors initiative, which for the past two years, has donated musical instruments to 25 UK prisons as a means of rehabilitation for prisoners.
The screening will be followed with a special night in company of the above line-up, and of 'Jail Guitar Doors Graduates' (aka former prisoners who've been saved by the sound of music).
Billy, the 'Bard of Barking', says:
It's great to be part of this very special night and to see 'Breaking Rocks' come to its rightful full fruition. The voice of ex-prisoners is rarely heard in a society that locks more people up every year, and all graduates of Jail Guitar Doors draw on their life experiences to write powerful songs.
The event (screening and live performances) will run from 6.30pm to 11.30pm. Tickets cost £15.00 + booking fee - on sale now.
