Think Waterboys meets The Levellers - with their own unique gritty sound!

Billy in the Lowground are often shoe-horned into the pigeonhole of ‘Folk Rock’, mainly because they’re loud and there’s a distinct Irish influence courtesy of fiddle player Ruth Behan, but the sound is continuously evolving, incorporating elements of Americana, Rock, and Country.

Comparisons are sometimes made with the Waterboys and the Levellers, but there’s a distinctive tone to the band that’s all their own.

They’ve played hundreds of gigs in pubs, clubs, and venues large and small all over the UK since they formed in 1991, as well as too many festivals to count, and supported many well-known acts including John Otway, Shane McGowan & the Popes, The Men They Couldn’t Hang, Norma Waterson & Martin Carthy, Oysterband, Rory McCleod and Fairport Convention.

The latest album ‘Ticket to Somewhere’ has had excellent reviews – Rock’n’Reel magazine described it as “Nashville relocated to the wilds of Somerset, and played with Joe Strummer’s heart and soul”
