British musical artist Billy Bragg has been likened to American protest singers such as Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. Bragg's most recent CD, Mermaid Avenue, featured never-before recorded lyrics by Guthrie. Billy Bragg performs some of those songs and chats with Ray Suarez about the challenge of bringing Guthrie's music to a modern audience.
