Police Dog Hogan

“Since they made their album debut back in 2010, Police Dog Hogan have been building a reputation as one of the country’s finest live bands and folk-country acts,” said Folk Radio in 2022. “Overground is their finest hour yet.”

After the release of their album Overground – which spent 4 weeks on the UK Folk albums chart – Police Dog Hogan returned to steady touring, with dates taking them across the UK. The band also spent much of 2023 in the studio, releasing regular new singles to streaming platforms beginning with the stunning Just Breathe in April – each track produced (with the band) by George Murphy, who also produced Overground. 2024 sees plans already advanced for an autumn tour and a new album.

Police Dog Hogan combine guitar, fiddle, banjo, trumpet and accordion with bass and drums to create a driving country-folk sound that has earned them a large live following. They’ve played dozens of festivals, many of them repeatedly, including Glastonbury, Cropredy, Cornbury, Kendall Calling, Black Deer and the Sidmouth Folk Festival.

Line Up

Police Dog Hogan are a high-energy and eclectic eight-piece, combining fiddle, banjo, mandolin, accordion, trumpet, drums and guitars with knockout four-part harmonies in an exuberant fusing of country, pop, folk, and rocking urban bluegrass. The Sunday Times has described them as “wonderful”; the Telegraph named them one of its ‘favourite new bands”; Radio 2 called them “a band to watch” and veteran DJ Johnnie Walker praises their gigs as “just a really good, fun time”.
