Raising Merry Hell
MERRY HELL is a band founded on the ever evolving Folk tradition – music made by the people and shared by the people. 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 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...

The absolute world premiere of our documentary:
A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF MERRY HELL.

A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF MERRY HELL

Tickets available here!!

If Life is a journey, ours has been more of a mystery tour wrapped up in an adventure that we really want to share. Wherever we go, we feel love and togetherness between band members and the people we meet. It’s a real privilege to be part of that, so we want to give our audience a deeper sense of who we are, where we come from, where we’ve been and where we’re going.

We took our new camera behind the curtain, into our dressing rooms (when we had them), into our homes, on the road, to the soundchecks and service stations – and, along the way, into our thoughts, dreams and concerns. We hope that you’ll enjoy a peek into our experience of being a band – and into the joy of being Merry Hell, in what was a fabulous year for us.

This collage of sights, sounds and memories is dedicated to the friends we’ve made and those we hope to meet in future.

After showing our documentary, there will be a Question and Answer session involving all members of the band for approximately an hour.

Tickets include a copy of the DVD of the documentary. We offer a single ticket at £12.50 to include a copy of the DVD and a ticket for 2 people for £17.50 that includes admission for those 2 people but only one copy of the DVD.

Songwriting & Music with Bob Kettle Here are a couple of reviews and notable mentions of our new acoustic album Anthems to the Wind.

Folk Radio
Got to love this review from those thoroughly decent chaps at Folk Radio UK.

From the Margins
We are very happy to share a lovely, thoughtful and insightful review of Anthems to the Wind - this time courtesy of the 'From the Margins' website. No money changed hands to obtain this review - but when we see the writer he will be greeted with a broad smile and a firm handshake of gratitude!
