There has been quite a bit on here recently about the legendary HEDGEHOG PIE and their various albums.

Good news for all fans - they are reforming, initially for a one off at Warwick Festival.

Here is the Press Release:

Folk-rock legends Hedgehog Pie return to Warwick Folk Festival after nearly 30 years

Electric folk legends Hedgehog Pie are to make a reunion appearance at Warwick Folk Festival this summer.

The line-up of Mick Doonan, Jed Grimes and Dave Burland will be joined by Phil Murray on bass and percussionist Bryan Ledgard. This is the band's first appearance at this long-established Festival since 1981.

Formed in 1971, they rapidly established themselves as a major force in the British folk-rock scene, alongside such bands as Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span by contributing to the growing interest in folk music by a new generation of fans throughout the decade.

Based in the North East of England, the band went through numerous line-up changes and featured many prominent figures in the folk scene. They built up a big regional national following and their 1978 album, Just Act Normal topped the Melody Maker folk chart.

After a gap of almost thirty years, the band is making one of its first reunion public appearances at the 2010 Warwick Folk Festival, during the weekend of 23-25 July.

Says Festival organiser, Dick Dixon, 'This is a big coup for the Warwick Folk Festival. Many fans remember Hedgehog Pie with great affection and there will be a lot of nostalgic interest in their appearance. And with their full folk-rock line-up, they sound as good as ever!'

Details and festival tickets are available from the Festival Box Office, 01926 776438 or visit the Festival website on
