Police Dog Hogan have performed in all four home nations, at Glastonbury, across Ireland, at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, the Americana Festival in Nashville, played support for Brian Wilson, and crammed themselves into the legendary and tiny Somerset Shed for an acoustic set.
‘Brilliant’ song-writing, ‘sensational’ harmonies, ‘fantastic’ musicianship,‘joyous’ live performances - are 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, with legendary broadcasters Mark Radcliffe and Johnie Walker amongst their many fans.
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.
