The Skimmity Hitchers

The Skimmity Hitchers


Maria Greenwood presents Unplugged, a celebration of Dorset’s live music scene on Wessex FM (96-97.2FM) every Sunday evening from 5pm - 7pm

Known for their love of cider and the West Country, The Skimmity Hitchers play their own unique brand of Scrumpy and Western. Band members Jack Scrumpy, Tatty Smart, Drum Cheddar and Magners O’Magnersson each has their own Skimmity name and kindly gave me the honouree title of “Old Rosie”. Original songs, Skimmity Pint Song and Hold Up Your Cider Jar are performed alongside parodies of famous tunes such as Lovely Pint A Cider (Johnny Cash’s Ring Of Fire). With an infamous stage show drawing on spontaneous banter and audience interaction, they’re a live act that shouldn’t be missed.
