The Red Flags were formed over 25 years ago by Ken Connor, Nigel Reigate & Nick Coleman. Often referred to as the darlings of the left they have been playing rallies, demonstrations and picket lines ever since and have performed along with Folk legends such as The Watersons & Carthy families and Dick Gaughan as well as less traditional artists like Billy Bragg & Robb Johnson.  I was booked to play at Burston Strike School Rally ’18 and having been friends with Ken Connor for many years he invited me to join as cajon player and to sing the odd song.
