Big Busk, Sat 28th July 2012 – Review

Billy Bragg‘s Big Busk is an annual event at the Southbank & open to all musicians. At 2pm there was a rehearsal in the Festival Village (a cavernous room under the Queen Elizabeth Hall), where a motley crew of guitarists, uke players, percussionists & others had gathered to join in the fun.

Guitarist Ben Mandleson ensured everyone was tuned up, then Billy joked that busking tunes should only contain two chords – three was showing off! His crew behind had a selection of large cards with the guitar chords drawn on, which were held up as he played – confusion often reigned in the numbers with quick chord changes when the wrong cards were held up.
