Billy Bragg speaks eloquently on the importance of music in a community

Billy Bragg has released a book of annotated lyrics, A Lover Sings, published by Faber & Faber. Released on Nov. 4, The Guardian published an excerpt from the book, including this passage: “Music can draw us out of isolation and connect us with a community where we feel our troubles and concerns are recognised and shared. If music has any real power, it lies in this moment – when we experience the solidarity of song, the cathartic realisation that you’re not the only person who shares the sentiments that are being so forcefully expressed.”
