Hurray for the Riff Raff – UK Dates

Hurray for the Riff Raff will perform a string of UK shows this summer. Led by Alynda Segarra, Hurray For The Riff Raff is a dynamic part of the progressive folk scene. With songs including ‘The Body Electric’ and ‘I Know It’s Wrong (But That’s Alright)’ from their latest LP ‘Small Town Heroes’, the band is speaking out on behalf of women, LGBTQ and civil rights-minded communities. They do this not only with their music, but also with activism campaigns like ‘Women Are Powerful and Dangerous’ that have contributed to the Third Wave Fund and The Radical Monarchs.

A Puerto Rican girl from the Bronx, Segarra has also begun the process of recording a new record with producer Paul Butler (Michael Kiwanuka, Devandra Banhart). “This next album is inspired by city life and all that it takes to survive: not just to eat and breathe but to survive culturally and spiritually,” Segarra explained. “I have been very inspired by the 70’s salsa scene of Fania Records and the Nuyorican poetry scene in the Lower East Side. I am excited about what is ahead and can’t wait to share it.” The album is currently scheduled for release early next year.

Weds 29th June – Birmingham – The Rainbow
Mon 4th July – Leicester – The Musician
Tues 5th July – Norwich – Arts Centre
