Hue and Cry celebrate anniversary at Ropery Hall
Hue and Cry will be performing at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall as part of the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of the release of the classic live album Bitter Suite.
Brothers Patrick and Gregory Kane, who formed Hue and Cry in 1983, will be performing at the Maltkiln Road venue in a very special stripped back show.
Released in 1989 Bitter Suite was Hue and Cry’s third album and the band’s first live album and followed on from the critical acclaim and chart success that greeted their debut album Seduced and Abandoned and the follow-up, Remote.
“Bitter Suite features a beautiful acoustic version of the classic Hue and Cry hit Looking For Linda, along with their much loved cover of Michael Marra’s seminal Mother Glasgow,” explains Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk..
The duo continued to make a huge impact in the ‘80s and albums like “Stars Crash Down” and “Jazz Not Jazz” ensured the group’s continued triumph in the 1990s.
Further success followed in the noughties with albums “Open Soul”, “Xmasday” and the live album “Bitter Suite Again” along with more success in the years following.
To date Hue and Cry have sold more than two million records worldwide.
Hue and Cry will be performing at Ropery Hall on Friday, October 4. Tickets cost £22 in advance or £24 on the door. Advance tickets can be bought online at www.roperyHall.co.uk, in person from The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery, or by calling 01652 660380.
