The Undercover Hippy – POSTPONED
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, The Undercover Hippy has been postponed until Saturday 26th September 2020.
Everyone who purchased tickets through the Red Brick Building website has been emailed with further instructions.
We sincerely apologise for any disappointment caused, and thank you for your understanding.
Intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove!
Drum and Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer-songwriter. Described by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson 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. Think Natty meets Eminem…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Renowned for the electric atmosphere of their live shows, Billy and his band have performed at some of the UK’s best festivals, including Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, Shambala, Green Man, The Secret Garden Party, Ireland’s Electric Picnic, and many more.
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.
Saturday 18th April
