Billy in the Lowground


Billy in the Lowground formed back in 1991 as the Brew Band, since when they've slogged all over the country playing loud 'n' dirty folk rock (for want of a better description) to all & sundry.

Over the years, they’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.
