Chester to Present Scottish Pop

Chester’s longest running venue supplying live comedy and music to the city, Alexander’s Live, has announced it will be welcoming a much-loved pop duo from Scotland to its stage later this month.

After forming in Coatbridge near Glasgow in 1983, Hue and Cry went on to enjoy chart stardom with successful hit singles like “Labour of Love”, and albums like “Remote” and “Seduced and Abandoned”.

Made up of two brothers, Gregory and Patrick Kane, Hue and Cry continued recording beyond their ‘80s fame, earning recognition for albums like “Jazz Not Jazz” and “Stars Crash Down” in the 1990s. The group advanced into 21st Century with the critically acclaimed “Open Soul” released in 2008 and many others. By 2017, they had recorded their 12th album, entitled “Pocketful Of Stones”, which was applauded by the music press. They have now entered the studio again to produce a brand new release.

Known for their enchanting live performances, Hue and Cry has sold tens of thousands of tickets to their shows worldwide and played alongside some of the most famous artists in recording history, including U2, Madonna, James Brown, Van Morrison and Al Green.

With over two million records sold to date, the Kane brothers have also been presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Scottish Music Awards.

Hue and Cry will play Alexander’s Live on Thursday, March 23. The Chester venue is located at Rufus Court and the doors for the show will open at 7:30 pm.
