A “Great ’60s sound!”

Transport yourself back to a time of flares, flower-power and fantastic music with The Hurdy Gurdies, Devon and Cornwall’s top 1960s band. The Hurdy Gurdies pay tribute to music’s greatest decade, putting on fun and energetic shows featuring period outfits, instruments and equipment to really bring the sounds of the ’60s to life.

The Hurdy Gurdies pride themselves on their musicianship, and aim to reproduce all the sounds of the ‘60s; you can expect to hear everything from Hofner basses to harpsichords, harmonicas to Hammond organs, and 12 string guitars to psychedelic sitars!
