Rescheduled from Fri 30th October 2020 and Fri 7th May 2021 and Fri 8th April 2022
Merry Hell is a band founded on the ever evolving Folk tradition – music made by the people and shared by the people. Founded in their native northwest England in 2010, they have risen to become festival favourites, their albums finding favour with critics, broadcasters and music fans alike.
Though our hearts and souls are tuned to the songs which came before us, we bring you new words and music forged from our own experiences, from the lows and the from the lows and the loves of our lives. Our art is energy and our hope is unity. Our pleasure is to please: let the audience be the acid test and let the music speak for itself…
Merry Hell are thrilled to announce that Ranagri will be supporting Merry Hall for this performance – they are not to be missed!
