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...

As you will hopefully know by now, our gig at The Grand, Clitheroe on Feb 28th, was filmed for a live DVD.
We will be releasing the DVD later in the year, but in the meantime here is a little teaser for your viewing pleasure.
With the release of our new album coinciding with the start of the election campaign, let's celebrate with a song, No Money is an anthem for the other 90%. You won't hear it on the radio in the run up to voting day, so enjoy it here as a download. Download MP3 or ZIP file
