Those little scallywags The Skimmity Hitchers and Imprints along with fellow scrumpers Corky and Cut Throat Francis are descending on the Exchange in Bristol in full-force cider-swilling, foot-stomping, knees-up mayhem.
Your mini cider festival and 2019 festival season warm-up line-up:
The Skimmity Hitchers:
Rising from the cider soaked floors of Dorset’s back street boozers, the Skimmity Hitchers now roam the full girth of the West Country and beyond. Bringing their dry and fruity blend of Scrumpy & Western music to venues, festivals and fairs, these scrumpy swillin’ reprobates appeal to young and old, and everyone from folkies to cider punks, beardy badgers to shifty blaggers.
Imprints are a Shanty-Folk-Rock cider fuelled explosion from Bristol. With songs covering everything from Space Pirates to Zelda’s political leanings, from the undead partying to waking up drunk and doing it all over again, Imprints will guarantee foot-stomping fun and the mightiest and fieriest of jigs.
Cut Throat Francis:
Cut Throat Francis are a four-piece band from Bristol, combining Folk, Swing and upbeat Eastern European flavours.
They are also known for the array of instruments they bring to their live show including The Banjo, Mandolin and Melodica as well as rich four-part harmonies and a thumping beat from the Cajon!
Agricultural hip-hop. World’s best, alright only, Scrumpy & Western rapper.
