The Champion Hillbillies
The Champion Hillbillies won their champion title not simply because they all reside on or about Champion Hill. It's also because they're the champion rowdy hillbilly band in the hills of South London. They have played many venues in them hills, as far east as the Kidbrooke Beer Festival and as far west as Brixton's Windmill and Pop Brixton. In 2017, they left the hills to perform in the woods of the Wilderness Festival. But whether they're invited to play or they just turn up and start busking, the Champion Hillbillies most enjoy playing near beer.website of The Champion Hillbillies
