Hue & Cry to play at the Belfast Empire in 2018

Hue & Cry are delighted to be coming back to Ireland for two shows in 2018, and this time Pat and Greg are bringing their full band. They will play at the Belfast Empire on Friday 2nd March 2018.

The last time Pat & Greg played Dublin it coincided the release of 2012’s ‘Hot Wire’, so these shows in Dublin and Belfast is very welcome news, five years on!

Platinum selling duo Hue & Cry (Patrick and Gregory Kane) new album Pocketful Of Stones is out now. An album of masterful ballads and anthems, Pocketful Of Stones is the brother’s first record of completely original material since 2012’s Hot Wire.

The new single from the twelve-track long play is the beautiful ‘Let Her Go’ featuring vocals from Pat’s youngest daughter, Eleanor Kane. The song was penned in tribute to Eleanor flying the nest and carving her path. Listen to Let Her Go now –

The new album, Pocketful Of Stones exhibits the full spectrum of Hue And Cry’s formidable sonic repertoire.  Pat’s soulful vocals, paired with the tense of musical build ups, and the dynamic shifts and mood of Greg’s compositions.  The sound is brought to life with the expert musicianship of Hue And Cry’s band, “they’re all over this new album, Pocketful Of Stones”, Pat explains, “and they power our live shows to greater heights.  We’re working with an amazing community of younger generation musicians who were inspired to take up their instruments by our big albums like Seduced And Abandoned, Remote, and Stars Cash Down.  It’s a golden era for us in Scotland in terms of sheer musical talent, and we’re proud to highlight and showcase that on Pocketful Of Stones.”

Together with the songs from the new album Pocketful Of Stones, we are sure that some of the long loved favourites from our school days will also feature in the 2018 live shows too!
