MUSIC | MERRY HELL | SATURDAY 1 SEPTEMBER

Saturday night is party night of Lyme Folk Weekend with the exuberant sound one of the most exciting live bands to have emerged in recent years.

Winners of both the Best Band and Best Live Band at the 2018 Folking.com awards, Merry Hell have been blazing a trail in the north of England with their high-energy, foot-stomping folk-rock, and are making a rare visit to the South West especially for Lyme Folk Weekend.

The sound of dreams realised, joy unconfined, your favourite yesterdays returning and the promise of tomorrow. Merry Hell are all this and more.

Founded in their native North West of England, Merry Hell is an eight-piece folk-rock band with a history, a pedigree and a bright future. In four short years they have risen to become festival favourites, their first two albums finding favour with critics, broadcasters and music fans alike. They are continuing to develop an enviable reputation for the quality of their song writing, recorded work and live performances.

The band was forged in the smouldering embers of 90s Folk-punk band, The Tansads. Following an emotional series of reunion concerts in 2010, its members chose to tread the boards under a new name, ‘Merry Hell’, in order to reflect their new impetus, new hopes and, most importantly, new songs.

 

Support comes from Ranagri.
