Billy in the Lowground

Paper Edge2

“It’s always difficult to describe a band that plays their own original material..!
Comparisons have often been made with the Waterboys and the Levellers, but there’s a distinctive tone to Billy in the Lowground that’s all their own, and they’ve resisted being slotted neatly into a pigeonhole from day one.
Suffice to say, they’re a 6-piece West Country Rock band with a distinct Irish influence courtesy of fiddle player Ruth Behan, driven by a tight rhythm section, playing original songs written by frontman Chris Hibberd.
Since forming in 1991, they’ve played many hundreds of gigs in venues and festivals small and large all over the UK.
They’ve also supported a wide selection of well-known acts including John Otway, Shane McGowan & the Popes, The Men They Couldn’t Hang, Waterson & Carthy, Oysterband, Rory McCleod, the Wurzels, Fairport Convention, Wishbone Ash and Transglobal Underground.”
