The Undercover Hippy (Solo)

THE UNDERCOVER HIPPY - Solo Tour 2019  Best known for his high energy full band shows, it is something of a rare treat to catch Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, giving an intimate solo performance. It offers an opportunity to hear the songs in their rawest form, up close and personal, and to really connect with the lyrics and the performer. One of Billy’s biggest strengths is the way he manages to pack his songs full of political and social commentary whilst at the same time remaining playful and uplifting, and this playfulness is even more apparent in an acoustic setting. Covering topics from fake news, internet privacy and the U.S. election, to nappy wearing barristers and best friends trying to snog your mum, his performance takes you on a rollercoaster of storytelling and thought provoking protest pieces.

A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not

Marky Dawson Live at The Vaults!

Marky started teaching himself piano at 14. At 18, whilst studying at The London College of Music, he started working as a resident musician in bars and clubs. It’s here he developed his fast and wild Rock n Roll style piano playing skills along with his ability to interact with an audience. Taking requests and heckles, becoming an experienced showman. He mixes his versions of classics with his own catchy songs and some jokes. He’ll make sure you’ll sing along! He hates to sit still and has often been described as a Piano test Pilot. Marky is a charismatic entertainer with a voice most often compared to Freddie Mercury (His EP “First Takes” and included a seminal version of “Radio Gaga”) and Piano chops to make Jerry Lee Lewis blush. You will be entertained with the intimacy of a blues club, the performance of stadium act quality, and the fun of the pub. Remarkyble. https://www.wegottickets.com/event/460817

Bath Comedy Fest: Robyn Perkins – Mating Selection

On August 14, 2018, Robyn Perkins (4 Stars, Voice Magazine) participated in a dating show in front of a live audience. Her experience led to her exploring human morality and the social constructs of present day dating, with a scientific twist. Robyn is known for her �”confident, charming and relatable personality�?” (Edinburgh Festivals), which allows her to delve into complex and uncomfortable territory. How do social constructs change how we date? What is the role of morality in attraction? These questions are explored as she shares the story of the most uncomfortable moment she has ever had on stage.
