A PERFORMER giving a new meaning to the term singer-songwriter is set to entertain audiences in Dorchester on Saturday, November 9.

Billy Rowan and his band, aka The Undercover Hippy, are renowned for the electric atmosphere of their live shows and have performed at festivals across the country, including Glastonbury, Boomtown and The Secret Garden Party. Billy's music combines powerful messages with infectious reggae rhythms, and has clocked up more than three million streams on Spotify.

The Undercover Hippy will take to the stage at the Corn Exchange in Dorchester in collaboration with Dorchester Arts.

Ahead of the performance, artistic director Mark Tattersall said: "The group combine intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove. This is music for the thinking person. Think Natty meets Eminem… on a protest march …at the Edinburgh Fringe."

The show starts at 8pm. Tickets are £14 or £12 for concessions and members of Dorchester Arts, available from the Dorchester website or box office. They can also be purchased in person from the Corn Exchange.
