Merry Hell & Ranagri
Screaming Tarts presents…
Merry Hell & Ranagri.
Saturday April 9th 2022. The New Adelphi Club, Hull.
Multi-award winning Merry Hell offer joyful, uplifting folk-rock, with a message for troubled times.
Native to the North-West of England, the 8-piece musical charabanc was built from the embers of the much-loved folk-punk band The Tansads, before developing a life and feel all of its own.
Their energy and passion is complimented by their love of what they do and desire to share hope and togetherness with as many people as are willing to listen. Through 6 well-received albums and hundreds of gigs, they’ve offered voices of hope and beacons of light to anyone valuing both melody and positive humanity.
Joining Merry Hell on their Spring tour are Alt-folk band Ranagri – 4 Irish and English musicians; combining Voices, Guitar, Bouzouki, Flutes, Whistles, Harp/Electric Harp, Bodhrán/Drums.
Since forming, Ranagri have recorded three studio albums at Grammy Award Winning Record Label Stockfisch Records, and are recording their fourth which will be released in Spring 2022.
Combining their love for world music, they have collaborated with top Indian musician Kuljit Bhamra OBE, and members of Britten Sinfonia at The Bhavan Centre, London. No strangers to large venues, Ranagri have performed at Birmingham Symphony Hall, Fairfield Halls, The Union Chapel, Buxton Opera House and Camac Harp Festival in France to name a few.
