Hue and Cry

With over two million records sold worldwide and a new album in the works, Hue and Cry full live band will perform at Perth Festival of the Arts.

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.  To date, Hue and Cry have sold more than two million records worldwide.

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. 

In 2017, the band released their long-awaited twelfth album ‘Pocketful Of Stones’ to critical acclaim. 2019 will see live shows up and down the UK, with the full live band performing at Perth Festival.
