It is a small square, set away on the far side of the magnificent Alhambra complex, but we say the Plaza Joe Strummer inaugurated on Monday 20th May in Granada, southern Span would have delighted Joe.
It is with great pride that we, Strummerville The Joe Strummer New Music Foundation, would like to say a massive thank you to EVERYONE for the past 10 years. Here’s to the next.
After a magical three days in the Somerset hills, The Justice Tonight Band closed the one-off Strummer of Love festival commemorating the life, beliefs and music of Joe Strummer.
Gone but not forgotten. Your flags we keep flying, And your legacy of hope and freedom. Your wise words – we try to heed them, In campfires and concerts and in the hearts of those who need them. One love, Strummerville x
