Billy Bragg's Ode to Joy in L.A.

In our new book there's a full chapter on Billy Bragg and his writing a new libretto for Beethoven's Ninth.  My co-author Kerry Candaele produced the premiere of the new version in the USA in a gala concert in L.A.   Here's an excerpt shot by Kerry which includes a solo piano version of the Ninth and then Billy comes on about 13 minutes in, sings a tune, talks about his new libretto, sings it and leads a singalong.
