Multi-award winning Merry Hell offer joyful, uplifting folk-rock, with a message of hope for troubled times.

Native to the north-west of England, the eight-piece musical charabanc emerged from the embers of the much-loved folk-punk band The Tansads, before developing a life and feel all of its own. Their energy and passion is complemented by their love of what they do and desire to share hope and togetherness with as many people as possible.

Through six well-received albums and hundreds of gigs, they’ve offered voices of hope and beacons of light to anyone valuing both melody and positive humanity. Their live appearances have won many admirers, a recent review referred to “every performance a celebration” and they are currently holders of Folking.com’s Best Live Band Award.

Emergency Lullabies, their latest album, gained wonderful reviews, significant airplay and a place in the UK Official Folk Chart, with the 2021 single When We Meet Again hitting No.8 in the USA Folk Radio charts – all confirming that this is a band on the rise!
