Edgar Broughton, POG and The Finger Choppers will be the entertainment at the Hitchin venue next Saturday.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Broughton was a founder member of the Edgar Broughton band in the 60s and is well known for his incredible voice and political lyrics.

Today, his many musical interests are reflected in his songs, from industrial techno and hard rock, to Buddhist chants and yoik – the traditional singing style of the Sami reindeer herders of northern Scandinavia.

Expect an emotive and powerful performance.

There’s more on the night, though, with last year’s Rhythms performers POG and The Finger Choppers taking to the stage.

POG’s tales of everyday failure make for a catchy folky sound, reminiscent of Violent Femmes and Belle & Sebastian, while Welwyn GC band The Finger Choppers “pervert” – their own term – old time blues hillbilly and rock ‘n’ roll.
