Rising from the cider soaked floors of Dorset’s back street boozers, Skimmity Hitchers now roam the full girth of the West Country and beyond.

The ‘Hitchers blend razor sharp parodies and original material with a raucous stage show, spontaneous audience interaction, cheeky banter and general cider shenanigans…

…this is the most quirky band that you’re likely to come across: 60s surf and garage music played on original vintage instruments.
