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.
