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.

Tickets: £12 + BF www.skiddle.com

Continuing our series of legendary song-writers in intimate venues, we're elated to be bringing Robyn to Bath. Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. 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
coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration). Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’. His most recent album is self-titled and marks his 21st release as a solo artist.

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
