The Undercover Hippy [+]

Free admission before 10pm, £4 thereafter

Billy Salisbury, a.k.a. The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. His music brings together folk guitar, soulful vocals, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical wordplay of a hip-hop mc. Political without preaching, his songs deliver a positive message that is hard to ignore.

Starting out as a dj and mc when he was 16, Billy finally returned to the music of his hippy upbringing and picked up a guitar again in 2002.

What’s not to like? It’s a jangly acoustic vibe that pervades, but to term them ‘folk’ (as so many other bands do at the moment, to escape the straitjacket of indiedom) is misleading.
