The Undercover Hippy, Junior Bill + support
Drum and Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. Described by Tom Robinson (BBC6Music) as being “like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest and The Sleaford Mods”, his music brings together powerful messages, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Think Natty meets Eminem…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Support comes from Cardiff’s Junior Bill –
Their educated and eclectic street sound acknowledges the spirit of the Clash, tips its pork pie hat off to Two Tone, and shakes hands with the vanguard of vintage Jamaican dub. It’s a passionately delivered global-local collage of Reggae, Latin, Punk, Portuguese rap and Cardiffian stories, and it’s finding a home in the hearts and minds of people across the country
This one’s not to be missed!
