Billy Bragg honoured Woody Guthrie with a cover of “I Ain’t Got No Home” at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
Guthrie was being inducted into the Radio 2 Folk Awards Hall of Fame.
Bragg has covered Guthrie’s music throughout his career, notably with Wilco on 1998’s Mermaid Avenue – and it two follow-ups in 2000 and 2012 – which put new music to unused Guthrie lyrics.
Bragg previously covered “I Ain’t Got No Home” on his last solo album, 2013’s Tooth And Nail.
