THE Undercover Hippy himself returns to The Cove as part of an extensive UK tour on Thursday, May 2 2019.
Billy Rowan 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 DJ’ing and MC’ing on the Drum & Bass circuit, Billy swapped the decks for a guitar and started out as a solo act in 2007.
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.
Having wooed crowds on the big stage at Glastonbury, The Big Chill, Green Man and Boomtown, he is back in Hope Cove after a sold out show there in 2018.
Advance tickets are £10.

HAILED by Frank Turner as one of the best songwriters in the UK, Will Varley arrives on the coast for a special intimate gig at The Cove on Sunday, May 26.
Powerful, political & pertinent, the man himself headlines the annual four-day Hope Cove Beer and Music Festival spread across the Bank Holiday weekend.
Over the past few years, Varley has established himself as one of the best in the business - touring relentlessly across Europe and America in support of Billy Bragg, Turner, Valerie June and The Proclaimers.
And he’s also sold out his own headline shows in cities such as Berlin, Zurich, Amsterdam and Vienna plus the majority of his 2018 UK Tour which culminated with a triumphant show at London’s legendary Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
Airplay via 6Music, Radio X and Radio 1 confirms his standing while his latest album reached number two in the iTunes Singer Songwriter charts in the UK, number three in Germany and made the top 30 in the US.
It’s a real coup to see him perform live in Hope Cove.
