Cider-swillin’ reprobates Skimmity Hitchers return to Dorchester Corn Exchange on Friday 20th
April for a night of live music and general wild fun.
Hugely popular in the West Country for their humorous and high-energy take on the Scrumpy & Western genre, the 4 boys will be taking over town with their blend of razor sharp parodies and home-pressed original material,
no doubt with a few surprises and a dancing badger thrown in for good measure.
The Hitchers’ Corn Exchange gig has become something of a yearly tradition, bringing in large
numbers of people from the local area and further afield. Alongside the attraction of seeing the
band in their natural environment, the quality of the supporting line-up has become a major
feature of the night. This year sees folk-rock festival favourites Imprints and local punk
youngsters Sinful Maggie doing the business, ahead of big summer festival appearances in
the South West and beyond.
Now in their eighth year, Skimmity Hitchers continue to attract a growing following based on
their unique live show and love for the West Country about which they sing.
Tickets are £12 (£10 concessions) and on sale from Dorchester Arts at
www.dorchesterarts.org.uk or by calling 01305 266926.
Doors open at 7.30pm and the first band will play at 8pm.
