Alison MacAulay commented on chris's blog post 2012 was it a very good year??
"Well said Chris! I think the gigs in Glasgow will always be the best ones, home crowd and all that. To me, Pat's voice just gets better every time I hear him, even if his memory waivers a wee bit. All part of the live show though. I have…"

Remember as a teenager being a huge Wet Wet Wet fan. Heard Hue and Cry, but at first, I couldn't like them as my sister did (we couldn't agree on anything!!), but when I heard they were doing a signing at HMV in Aberdeen, off I toddled after school and queued round the whole shop, waiting for their autographs. Being a poor school girl, couldn't afford to buy the album, but as I stood queueing, Seduced & Abandoned was playing, and I loved every single track. Now, as mentioned, being a fan of the Wets, I didn't like every track on their album.
So a new Hue and Cry fan was born. I wasn't able to see them live that time, but on 16th May 1989, I attended my first ever gig, being a Hue and Cry one, at the Capital in Aberdeen, sitting in row EE.
Since then, I have seen the boys play live lots of times, have met them a few times over the years too.
So 20 years on, I'm still a fan, and roll on 12th September! See you in Aberdeen guys!

Thank you yet again!

Well, well, well, Pat and Greg.  What can I say?  That was such a fabulous weekend and I think you are sounding better than ever.   Yes, I'm biased, but that's allowed isn't it?  23 years since my first Hue and Cry gig, I think I'm entitled to be.

Thanks to the Music Club, I have made so many new friends over the last couple of years.  And I must admit, I was probably looking forward more to catching up with them than the gigs.  OK, that sounds harsh (sorry) but it was like a…

Not really Hue and Cry related (although some of their music is helping me in my traning!) but I'd like to mention some fundraising I'm currently doing.

 

In 4 weeks time, along with thousands of other women, I will be attempting to walk 26.2 miles round the streets of Edinburgh, wearing a decorated bra, during the night!  Who comes up with these ideas? 

 

We are a small team of 9 ladies, all with the same disability of supporting the Dons ;)  We are raising money…

Saw Hue and Cry at the Lemon Tree, Aberdeen



Hue and Cry were big in the 1980s but they are not ones to let nostalgia get the better of them.



The two brothers played a stripped down gig with Pat Kane's smooth, soulful vocals and Greg on piano.



It gave the night an intimate feel as they played old songs, and tracks of the new album.



And, fresh from an appearance at a Burns' Festival in Ayr, they played two traditional songs by the Bard,… Continue

Lemon Tree, 23rd May 2009

I never get bored watching these guys perform. And after the performance at the Lemon Tree, I don't think I ever will.

Met up with Pauline and Louise for a wee drink before the gig, and when we wandered into the Lemon Tree, back of 8, there were people there, but loads of space in front of the stage. We'd found our place to stand! My hubby, not being the biggest of Hue and Cry fans, found someone from his work to speak with, so that saved him being bored to tears listening to 3 enthusiasts… Continue

Boys are coming back to Aberdeen

OMG, how excited was I when I got the email from Hue and Cry to say that they were playing at the Lemon Tree again. Couldn't wait to get home from work last night to book my tickets! But I did think that the 23rd May rang a bell. Was maybe going down to Glasgow for a wee sesh that day, but that's not going to happen now!

Time to get my Hue and Cry mp3 disc back in the car and go for a few long drives!

Blog to follow after May 23rd!

Hi Alison, Great to meet you too. Somehow got home ok though it's grim in Lancashire. Amazingly much worse than it was in Glasgow. Predictable result for Burnley, fortunatley though I didn't have to sit through it as the pubs seemed to all have the Celtic game on!! Hope to see you again at a gig soon!

Aye, the old Accies seem to do well up there these days! Getting stupidly excited about the weekend. I feel like a bloody teenager again!
