Following on from his Big Busk event during the Royal Festival Hall's re-opening celebrations in June 2007, Billy Bragg returns to the South Bank as part of the Cultural Olympiad Open Weekend and leads musicians of all ages and abilities on a mass sing-along guitar busk of some of his favourite songs.
Guitarists are invited to bring their instruments for an intimate warm-up rehearsal at 3pm in The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall.
The Big Busk then kicks off at 5pm, with Billy Bragg leading the mass sing-along with guitar accompaniment from the Level 2 Riverside Terrace and buskers joining in on Queen's Walk (weather permitting).
Some of the songs and chords included in the Big Busk are listed below.
Keep on Running - G C D Em
A New England - G C D Em Bm
Foundations - C F G Am
Walk On the Wide Side - E A
