Police Dog Hogan
+ More Info +

‘Brilliant’ song-writing, ‘sensational’ harmonies, ‘fantastic’ musicianship,‘joyous’ live performances – just a fraction of the accolades gathered by Police Dog Hogan at their ‘now-legendary’ live gigs. The 7-piece outfit has been attracting similar reviews for more than ten years now.

Singer/songwriter and acoustic guitarist James Studholme is at the helm, supported by fiddle, banjo, accordion, trumpet, bass and drums. These varied instruments allow the band to create a mosaic of sounds and songs including husky ballads mourning lost loves, foot-stompers about the West Country and full-throated, multi-harmony anthems. Their song “Devon Brigade’ was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2018 Americana Music Awards.

The band’s eagerly-awaited new album ‘Overground’ has been described as ‘their best ever’ and they’ll play tracks from it, as well as some of their most-loved songs on their upcoming tour of the UK.

Doors 7.30pm | Plus Support | Tickets £18.50 | Theatre
