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...

Songwriting & Music with Bob Kettle
Songwriting & Music workshop with Bob Kettle
October 20th 2018
Our very own bouzouki wielding songsmith, Bob Kettle, is running a songwriting workshop at Wigans Old Courts.
Whether you are a total beginner or an experienced musician, this workshop is for anyone with an interest in song writing and music. Guided by Bob Kettle (of Merry Hell fame), we will produce an original song entirely based the ideas and suggestions of our group. Explore the basics of creating rhythm, melody and lyrics in a friendly, supportive and encouraging environment. Lean how to ‘build’ and develop songs as a group and as an individual, receive hints and trips on how to use different musical instruments.

Folking Awards
Awards - Bloody Hell!
We've only gone and won 2 of the things!
BEST BAND and BEST LIVE ACT in the hugely respected Folking.com Awards.
We haven't prepared a speech but we'd like to thank our Mums and Dads, all those of you who voted for us and those lovely folk at Folking.com who nominated us in the first place (which is where the honour lies).
We can honestly say that it's put a spring in our strides, a twinkle in our eyes and a flutter in our hearts.
Hurrah!
