Billy In The Lowground (initially called the Brew Band) were formed in 1991, since when we’ve played literally hundreds of gigs all over the country as well as a handful in Europe.
Playing what could loosely be termed Folk-Rock (think ‘Weapon called the Word’ era Levellers rather than ‘All around my Hat’ era Steeleye Span!), with an Irish influence courtesy of fiddle player Ruth Behan, the sound is continuously evolving, veering into alt.country territory and even out-and-out Rock.
We don’t play covers, on the basis that nobody else plays our stuff, so why should we play theirs?!
Over the years, we’ve played festivals as diverse as: Glastonbury, Ashton Court, Trowbridge Pump, Bath festival, Respect in the West, Pontardawe International Folk, Larmer Tree and Off the Tracks; as well as supporting acts such as John Otway, the Popes, Rock Salt & Nails, Norma Waterson & Martin Carthy, Oysterband, the Wurzels and Fairport Convention.
