The Undercover Hippy - Solo

The Undercover Hippy - Solo

THE UNDERCOVER HIPPY - solo


Best known for his high energy full band shows, it is something of a rare treat to catch Billy Rowan, a.k.a. The Undercover Hippy, giving an intimate solo performance.


The show will offer an opportunity to hear the songs in their rawest form, up close and personal, and to really connect with the lyrics and the performer. One of Billy’s biggest strengths is the way he manages to pack his songs full of political and social commentary whilst at the same time remaining playful and uplifting, and this playfulness is even more apparent in an acoustic setting.


Covering topics from fake news, internet privacy and the U.S. election, to nappy wearing barristers and best friends trying to snog your mum, his performance takes you on a rollercoaster of storytelling and thought provoking protest pieces.

True Strays with support Jordan Jane

True Strays with support Jordan Jane

The Beyond the Horizon Tour with support from Jordan Jane


The True Strays are a vintage loving, blues fuelled, dirty rock and roll band. Their live shows are a joyous hoedown of huge bass driven riffs, a howling tornado of resonator guitar, cacophonous drums and soaring Hammond organ.


Influences span the history of modern music with great admiration for the delta blues of the 40s and 50s, British Invasion and Psychedelic Rock of the 60s and 70s, Southern Rock and Soul and modern age Punk, Rock and Blues artists. Blues music is at the heart of everything they do but their sound isn’t bound to those rules or that genre. Influences include greats like Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf, Jimi Hendrix and Fleetwood Mac, The Doors and Pink Floyd and more recent punk and rock and roll bands like Nirvana, QOTSA and Idles.


True Strays have made Bristol their home recently, after a previous band disintegrated after 5 years hard work. Determined to never be in that situation again, the True Strays was formed with the ambition that this band would last. With a new set of songs and hopes in their suitcases, the band set off doing what they knew best; playing live. A real road band, they took any show they could, busked relentlessly, and shared their songs with anyone that would listen. Regularly collaborating with old band mate Matthew Cooke and some of Bristol finest keys session players, the bands sound expanded and found new direction.

Direct from Austin, Texas, 10 time Grammy award winning Country/Western Swing legends - Asleep at the Wheel


'Coming right at ya!' - 50th Anniversary World Tour, one of only 8 UK dates!!


This is a huge coup for the Beehive in booking one of the great Americana bands. An incredible 8 piece line up on stage featuring pedal steel guitar, fiddles and horns fronted  by founder, leading light and lead vocalist Ray Benson, standing 6 foot 7 inches tall and taking into account his ten gallon hat and cowboy boots reaching nearly 7 foot!  A big presence and a big voice to match.

Along the way they have shared the stage with such greats as Bob Dylan, Alice Cooper, Hot Tuna, Lyle Lovett, Van Morrison, George Strait, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, Reba McIntyre, Ricky Skaggs, Garth Brooks and Vince Gill amongst countless others, and many of those artists have guested on their albums.


Such is the stature and popularity of the band, Bob Harris will be featuring an unprecedented 8 tracks from them on his Radio 2 Country Show in the lead up to the tour. Their latest album 'New Routes' demonstrates that they are more relevant, enjoyable and musically nimble than at any other time in their 50 year history.


To quote Ray Benson "I've been told that I'm relentless, so I guess I am. I'm just doing what I believe I'm meant to do, singing and playing better than ever. My role and concept of leading a band has never changed. It's gathering the best musicians I can find to play at the best of their ability and kick some ass every night onstage."


This band HAS to be seen live. Reuters describes them as "One of the best live acts in the business". A spectacular mix of Western Swing, Country, Blues and good ole Rock n' Roll. Whether you want to watch with a drink in hand or jive your butt off with the swing dancers, A GOOD TIME IS GUARANTEED!!  If you see only one band this year, see these!


Big name country acts from America visiting the UK normally only play major concert halls or festivals. This is an unprecedented rare chance to catch the best in the business at the Beehive in Honiton.


The legends of the Texas Dance halls...... Asleep at the Wheel.


With support from The Primitive Noise Band - good time, hip shakin', Rhythm & Blues from the UK.

Phil Beer & Sound of the Sirens

Phil Beer & Sound of the Sirens

Phil Beer together with Sound of the Sirens in a Special Double Header event.


When given the opportunity to be together for this unique evening of music Phil, Abbe and Hannah leapt at the opportunity and they are all very much looking forward to it.


Phil Beer will open the show and comes to the Beehive as part of the 'So Much to Choose From' 2020 Tour.  


The solo shows for 2020, which will be the last time Phil undertakes such a large number of performances, reflect the body of work encapsulating the last 40 years of his songs and music.


He will then be joined on stage by Sound of the Sirens and part of the show will be them making music together.


The last part of the evening will be Sound of the Sirens on their own.


The westcountry folk-rock duo Sound of the Sirens released brand new album This Time in early 2019 on independent label DMF Records. They are playing a number of headline shows in Spring 2020 before playing festivals throughout the Summer


“’This Time’ is a collection of moments, emotions, challenges and stories,” say the duo. “We’ve collected lyrics, melodies and ideas from the past couple of years for this project. We created this album last winter in an isolated barn in Wales with only guitars, a piano, wine and the dogs for company. The themes of time, love, loss, perseverance, hope and clarity are intertwined in these songs.”
