The Met welcomes innovative eight-piece Police Dog Hogan featuring Guardian columnist Tim Dowling

Energetic eight-piece Police Dog Hogan present third album, Westward Ho! at The Met on Thursday 27 November at 8pm.


Police Dog Hogan combine fiddle, banjo, mandolin, drums and guitars with knock-out four-part harmonies and a mash-up of country, pop, folk and rocking urban bluegrass. Featuring Guardian columnist Tim Dowling on banjo and vocals, the band’s literate and superbly crafted songs veer from the wistful and poetic to flat-out, foot-stomping tales of doomed barbecues and French mustard.


“An idiosyncratic bunch that pulls pop, Cajun, country and just about anything else into a hotchpotch of 110% entertainment.”- Spiral Earth


Founded in 2009, the band is now gigging in earnest, buoyed by rapturous receptions at clubs, pubs, theatres and summer festivals, including playing the main stage at Kendal Calling in August this year. Westward Ho! was released this October.


Tickets to see Police Dog Hogan are £14. For more information or to book phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz
