Hue & Cry on Saturday 5th October 2019

Brothers Patrick and Gregory Kane formed Hue and Cry in 1983 and the duo made a huge impact in the late 80’s with the albums ‘Seduced and Abandoned’ and ‘Remote’ as well as massive hit singles such as ‘Labour of Love.’ Albums like ‘Stars Crash Down’ and ‘Jazz Not Jazz’ ensured Hue and Cry’s continued triumph in the 1990’s, whilst the release of the hugely applauded ‘Open Soul’ in 2008 brought them firmly back into the limelight. The release of their seasonal album ‘Xmasday’ (2009) and live album ‘Bitter Suite Again’ (2010), preceded the release of ‘Hot Wire’ (2012) which received rave reviews. To date Hue and Cry have sold in excess of two million records worldwide.

2014 signalled the 25th anniversary of the seminal Hue and Cry album ‘Remote’, released to not only huge acclaim but to multi-platinum success, spawning the singles ‘Ordinary Angel’, ‘Violently’ and ‘Looking for Linda’. To mark this Hue and Cry released ‘Remote: Major to Minor’ a multi-media celebration of ‘Remote’ which comes as a limited edition 48 paged book containing four discs, including a re-worked and re-imagined version of the original album. In 2015 the brothers returned to the live scene with both their stripped format and full live band. 2015 also marked the centenary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, an artist whose career has been a huge influence on Pat and Greg’s musical style. To celebrate they recorded ‘September Songs’ a covers album dedicated to the original ‘Chairman of the Board’. 2016 was a busy year for the band, especially on the live scene with performances throughout the UK. The duo embarked on a winter tour with Paul Young and were invited to join Bros singer Matt Goss on two dates of his solo Christmas Tour. To end the year on a high the band were special guests as part of BBC One Scotland’s live television broadcast for Hogmanay. In 2017 the band released their long awaited twelfth studio album Pocketful Of Stones to critical acclaim, gaining 4/5 stars in both the Sunday Express and The Scotsman. 2018 was a very busy year for Hue and Cry who played headline shows and festivals throughout the UK and Ireland, including a British tour with fellow legendary band The Christians.

Hue and Cry have continued their stellar form into 2019, selling out their ‘Summer Nights at the Bandstand’ show at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Bandstand within 48 hours. As well as playing live shows up and down the country the guys are currently in the studio working on a brand new album.

Hue and Cry have garnered a wealth of publicity throughout their career and most recently with notable TV, Radio and Press outlets such as Lorraine (ITV); The Wright Stuff (Channel 5); Vintage TV; The Quay Sessions (BBC Scotland); Robert Elms (BBC London); Phil Williams (BBC Radio 5 Live); The Herald, The Daily Record, Record Collector, Classic Pop; Mail On Sunday and Songwriting Magazine.

The band have sold tens of thousands of concert tickets worldwide, as well as performing alongside some of the greatest artists in music history, appearing with U2, James Brown, Madonna, Al Green and Van Morrison to name but a few. The duo was recognised by their peers when they were presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Scottish Music Awards.
