Police Dog Hogan, St George's Bristol.
They say 'we are a folk band', one review paraphrased says 'high energy, eclectic multi instrumentalists'.
An exceptional live band, recordings do not do justice to the rapport with an audience, musicians who have other jobs are one of the tightest bands/groups I have seen in years, timing, tuning is spot on. FUN but serious. Then they enjoy their music, it comes across without taking themselves seriously. I've written before that I have a problem with the 'P' in PRAT, feeling that ensemble (Chord in their cable literature call it coherence) is more important. This band have it all, in abundance, eight performers who feed off each other, giving their best.
Interesting was that a number of songs were performed around a simple stereo pair of mikes, each person moving forward or back as they took the lead. Superb simple sound that was most effective. Not to suggest that the fully miked, plugged in sound was not good. Despite being involved, clapping, singing along as required, I found it easy to listen along, picking out each performer and they part they had to play. Definitely gestalt happening in the room.
Don't let genre prejudice affect you, go and see them for a good night out.
