With 8 members in the full line-up and instruments including guitar, accordion, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and trumpet, Police Dog Hogan draw their influences from many different wells. You could call it Americana, country-folk, folk-pop or even urban bluegrass, but it’s difficult to do justice to the sheer range of styles this band is willing to take on and, if necessary, transform.

Their live shows are exuberant, accomplished, stirring and funny, mixing country-fried heartbreakers, belting anthems and foot-stomping singlaongs. They’ve been a firm favourite on the festival circuit since forming in 2009, and have been playing to sell-out crowds across the country in the past year.

Their second album, ‘From the Land of Miracles’ attracted praise from many quarters. “No one in their right mind would imagine that the band that play on the opening track Better Go Now come from anywhere other than the heartland of America,” said Maverick magazine’s 5-star review. “But some of James Studholme’s intricate guitar playing comes straight out of the traditional English folk book and would make Richard Thompson proud.”

With their third album ‘Westward Ho!’ (produced by Oysterband’s Al Scott) now released on the Union Music Store label, Police Dog Hogan look set for big things. Featuring the classy Guardian columnist Tim Dowling on banjo!

Full line-up:
James Studholme – lead vocals, guitar
Eddie Bishop – violin
Tim Dowling – banjo
Tim Jepson – mandolin
Don Bowen – bass
Michael Giri – drums
Shahen Galichian – accordion, harmonica
Emily Norris – trumpet
