Hue and Cry

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 2 nd July 2017

Brothers Patrick and Gregory Kane formed Hue and Cry in 1983, the duo made a huge impact in the late 80’s with the albums ‘Seduced and Abandoned’ and ‘Remote’, as well as the 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.  New material from the album ‘Hot Wire’ (2012) garnered more rave reviews and with the 25th Anniversary of the seminal album ‘Remote’ in 2014 (multi-platinum release, spawning the singles ‘Ordinary Angel’, ‘Violently’ and ‘Looking For Linda’) the brothers released ‘Remote Major To Minor’, a multi-media celebration of ‘Remote’, and embarked on a UK wide tour. 2015 marked the centenary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, an artist whose career has been a huge influence on Patrick and Gregory’s musical style, and to celebrate they released ‘September Songs’, a covers album dedicated to the original Chairman of the Board. The duo are currently in the studio working on the hugely anticipated release of ‘Pocketful of Stones’ (release tbc 2017). To date Hue and Cry have sold in excess of two million records worldwide.

To end the year on a high the band were special guests as part of BBC One Scotland’s live television broadcast for Hogmanay. Pat and Greg Kane along with their full band played a selection of their hits in front of a studio audience to help presenter Jackie Bird count down to 2017. This year Hue and Cry are returning to the o2 ABC, Glasgow for the ‘Pocketful of Stones Weekend’ in April for two nights of music to mark the release of the album of the same name (release date tbc). Hue and Cry have garnered a wealth of publicity throughout their career and most recently with notable TV, Radio and Press outlets such as BBC Breakfast TV (BBC1); LIVE with Gabby TV (Channel 5); Jools Holland, Terry Wogan, Ken Bruce, Jeremy Vine (BBC Radio 2); Craig Charles (BBC 6 Music); Robert Elms (BBC London); Uncut, Record Collector, Mail on Sunday, The Independent, Daily Express, Scotsman.
