The following weekend on Friday 6th March we have the wonderfully exuberant 8 piece band, Police Dog Hogan, whose recently released song ‘West Country Boy’ is the Pre match sing- along for Exeter City FC, check out the link on the Beehive website for a sample, its very funny as are all their songs, a stirring mix of Americana, Bluegrass and belters! Also Guardian columnist Tim Dowling plays Banjo in the band.
