Steve White & The Protest Family
After a difficult childhood, Steve White & The Protest Family officially came of age at Tommy Flynn's in Camden on the 3rd December 2009. Led by songwriter Steve, their brash, witty, entertaining, often political brand of semi-acoustic folk/punk invokes comparisons with Billy Bragg when he used to be good. Frank Turner would hate it of course.
