Undercover Hippy + Duncan Disorderly & the Scallywags + DJ Jon Bongly

August 19, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - August 20, 2016 @ 2:00 am

£5 – £8

 

Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. His music brings together acoustic guitar, soulful vocals, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled mc. After 7 years spent DJing and MCing on the Drum & Bass circuit, Billy swapped the decks for a guitar and started out as a solo act in 2007.

Although he still occasionally does solo gigs, he now usually plays with a full band, mixing guitars, keys, drums, bass, percussion and backing vocals to create a high energy, interactive and highly entertaining live show. 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 Jason Mraz meets The Cat Empire…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe!

Duncan Disorderly & The Scallywags have been spotted at nearly every UK festival and you may have also seen them playing and walking the Paris marathon in aid of Music For Youth Charity. It’s non stop for the Scallywags and travelling on the road has become a way of life.

Duncan Disorderly & The Scallywags began their musical journey in 2010. With exceptional influences from Latin and Reggae to Gypsy and Swing/Jazz; charismatic Duncan and his Scallywags never fail to entertain. It isn’t all sweet jazz and chilled Reggae tunes, The Scallywags do love diversity with a few banging party tunes not going amiss in a late night show.

Having already toured Amsterdam, Italy and Spain and played shows in the UK at Glastonbury, Nozstock, Secret Garden Party and Sunrise, The Scallywags have notably headlined festivals such as Buddhafields, The Green Gathering, Small World, St Boi Alternativa Festival, Trontano Open Air Festival and Wild Heart.
