Scottish popmakers, Hue and Cry have been announced as special guests with The Human League when they play Thetford Forest, Suffolk, this summer as part of the Forestry Commission's live music programme.

Hue and Cry, brothers Pat and Greg Kane, came to prominence with hits like Labour Of Love, Violently and Looking For Linda. They have appeared with Madonna at Wembley and U2 in Glasgow and last year saw them return to the mainstream with Open Soul, their first pop album in 16 years. Having undertaken two UK wide tours in the last eight months, they continue to showcase their ability to write and produce classic pop music with a contemporary edge. 2009 has also seen the release of The Collection, a definitive selection of the band's earlier work which includes hits, rare mixes, extended versions and B-sides.

The Human League, fronted by lead vocalist Philip Oakey and backing singers Joanne Catherall and Susan Sulley, released a string of hits like Mirror Man, Louise, The Lebanon, Human, Love Action (I Believe In Love), and (Keep Feeling) Fascination. Their million-selling classic single Don't You Want Me brought transatlantic No 1 success and the album from which it was taken, Dare, became an essential part of the record collection for a whole generation of pop fans.

The Forestry Commission is committed to taking woodlands to new audiences and making them relevant to people in new ways. Forestry Commission live music is self-sustaining, paying for itself, and providing valuable revenue to plough back into the woodland in a variety of environmental and social projects.
