Police Dog Hogan

An eclectic and high-energy eight-piece band.

Police Dog Hogan combine fiddle, trumpet, mandolin, drums and guitars with four-part harmonies in an exuberant and genre-defying fusing of country, pop, folk, and rocking urban bluegrass. Much-loved Guardian columnist Tim Dowling adds his banjo to the musical mix.

Eliot James (of Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party, Noah And The Whale, and Two Door Cinema Club fame) produced the band’s second CD, and Al Scott (Seth Lakeman, Oysterband, The Levellers, Asian Dub Foundation) oversaw the new album, Wild By The Side Of The Road, which spent several weeks in the official UK Americana charts.

Police Dog Hogan were one of only three UK bands invited to Nashville to perform at the prestigious Americana Music Association Awards, where DJ Bob Harris – in town for the awards – snapped them up for a recording that has become one of the most-watched YouTube videos on his Under The Apple Tree Sessions channel.

They’ve played at festivals from Port Eliot and Bestival to Kendal Calling and Larmer Tree, and last year they appeared at Glastonbury for the first time, playing to a packed house on one of the major stages (Avalon). In July 2017 they were among the headliners on the main stage at the Cornbury Festival. Most shows on their last tour, from London, Bristol, Liverpool and Exeter to Salisbury’s City Hall, sold out and were rapturously received.
