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...

TRACK 1 - LEAVE IT IN THE GROUND

TRACK 2 - SISTER ATLAS

TRACK 3 - EMERGENCY LULLABY

Support from the currently mysterious carbonhobo. All in support of PAPYRUS - Prevention of Young Suicide.

At The Brindley Arts Centre, Runcorn
