Band Of Brothers: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Hue And Cry...

For the latest Scots Whay Hae! podcast Ali spoke to Greg and Pat Kane, better known as Scottish musical legends Hue And Cry, to hear all about their 40th anniversary celebrations which will be happening throughout 2024.

As part of those celebrations they are releasing demos and rarities every month, as well as producing a documentary, the Labour of Love digital series and other archival material, before undertaking a full-band tour later in the year.

The two talk about what it feels like to be making music together for four decades and the ups and downs along the way, how it all began, the surprises thrown up from their archive, their relationship with the music press, how they work together, the unforgettable memories, as well as explaining that it's always been a family affair - and there's so much more...

They also discuss who they listen to and admire among the up-and-coming and current crop of Scottish musicians, and why they think the country's music scene is in a healthy state, something which should be celebrated far and wide - an attitude with which SWH! agrees heartily.

This was a really special conversation with a band of brothers who have proven to be not only survivors, but thrivers, and you get the feeling that as they celebrate their 40th year there's plenty more yet to come.

Hue And Cry’s 40th Anniversary tour starts 10th October. The Labour Of Love series is released monthly. See for details.
