THE ‘POCKETFUL OF STONES’ WEEKEND – O2 ABC, GLASGOW
Hue and Cry are thrilled to announce that they will be performing two very special shows in Glasgow’s O2 ABC on Friday 21st April and Saturday 22nd April 2017. Building on the huge success of previous ‘Hue and Cry weekends’, the ‘Pocketful of Stones’ Weekend will see the band raise the bar yet again as they deliver everything that fans have grown to love during the annual weekend over the years.
FRIDAY 21ST APRIL 2017 – ACCOMPANIED STRIPPED SHOW
There is a wonderful addition to the Friday evening ‘stripped’ performance where Pat and Greg Kane will be joined on stage by several guest musicians to accompany them in renditions of a selection of Hue and Cry classics, some new songs and a few surprises. This is not to be missed!
SATURDAY 22ND APRIL 2017 – FULL BAND WITH STRINGS SHOW

He then took the opportunity to travel the world as a private chef to rock stars and celebrities such as; Bryan Adams, Tina Turner and Guns N’ Roses. Since returning to Glasgow, John has opened and established numerous successful restaurants which have achieved international recognition. In 2005 John, along with his wife Gillian, decided to open their own restaurant – Red Onion – which is a contemporary casual dining experience with a menu that offers something for everyone. The kitchen produces new interpretations of classic Scottish cookery, serving dishes that people know and love. Its environment is modern and comfortable and the service relaxed and informal with the bustling feel of your local neighbourhood bistro. Red Onion has been re-entered The Good Food Guide.
