POLICE Dog Hogan bring their driving country-rock and Americana vibe to Salisbury’s City Hall on Saturday, February 25.
And it will be a welcome homecoming for Emily Norris, trumpet player with the band.
She said: “It’s great to come back to my home town with Police Dog Hogan, we’ve had fabulous gigs here before in front of a fantastic crowd.
“For me it is also a chance to meet up with old friends. We’ll be showcasing material from our new CD ‘Wild By The Side Of The Road’ as well as all the old favourites”.
The show is part of an extensive tour throughout February, March and April and marks a welcome return to the venue for the band.
The tour will promote the band’s new album Wild By The Side Of The Road and this show is a great opportunity for fans to hear the new songs.
Wild By The Side Of The Road, released on Major Tom Records this week, marks a turning point in the band’s recording career and is already attracting much interest.
The collective musical skills of the band have been used to full effect to create an album that delivers on both interpretation and atmosphere underpinned by lead singer James Studholme’s lyrics based on stories and personal observations.
Formed in 2009, the band has evolved over the years into a tight-knit eight-piece unit combining guitar,fiddle, banjo, mandolin, accordion, trumpet, keyboards, bass and drums to create an exuberant fusing of country, pop, folk and rocking bluegrass.
They have served their time on the touring scene with more than 300 live shows under their belts, including appearances at the AMA Awards in Nashville and many prestigious UK festivals. They now regularly play to sell-out audiences up and down the country.
