The Railway and Mojo Hobo presents:
Billy Salisbury aka The Undercover Hippy has been performing at festivals since 2008, working his way up from being a solo singer-songwriter playing in small marquee stages, to now having a full band of incredible musicians and playing main-stages at some of the Europe’s best festivals. They’ve been regulars at Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown and many more.
Politically driven the band blend acoustic roots reggae folk-hop, with feel good vibes and a sly sense of humour. The live show is high energy, interactive, and always leaves the crowd begging for more. Loyal fans travel the length of the UK for shows and spread the music wider with their impressive devotion.
The Truth or Fiction tour marks the band’s third album, their most ambitious to date. Lyrically the band have never had so much to discuss. Political all always singer Billy Rowan discusses the state of the world at a time when we’re just starting to realise how much those who rule our lives hide information from us.
“..ten tracks of excellence…nothing short of a triumph! 9/10”
“..like a hip hop Gomez… Politically driven, clever and fun. 9/10”

"Skaraman is an experimental acoustic duo project of Original and Cover tunes mixing sounds of Reggae and Ska with a hint of Jazz and Hip-Hop aromas".
We've been on the circuit as a duo for about 18 months now recieving good feedback and a respectable following.
We're currently writing for an EP, which we're looking to release in the new year.
Based in South-West England, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jack Moore is a young, engaging and passionate musician. Known locally for frequently gigging as a one-man acoustic Rock & Roll army, Jack’s performance is unrelentingly inclusive and good fun. Musically, Jack is never afraid to knock on many different doors in the genre corridor and lets his influences run freely throughout his songs. Initially inspired by the likes of Frank Turner and Bob Dylan, recent times have seen Jack channel a wider range of influences in his writing, including Gogol Bordello, Queens Of the Stone Age, David Bowie, Lana Del Rey and Massive Attack among others. Expect old favourites for a sing-along or two, energetic original songs about life and being yourself and punk-rock waltzes about space missions gone wrong.
