BILLY BRAGG is to headline the first of a series of tributes to the deceased Clash frontman Clash.

‘Strumming for England – Part 1 The South Coast’ is the first of a series of nationwide acoustic memorial shows dedicated to the deceased Clash frontman.

Organisers say the all-day rallies will combine musical and political aspects and the inaugural event is taking place Southampton Maple Leaff Club (February 22).

Proceeds will be divided between Oxfam and the Fire Brigade Union.
