Merry Hell is a fantastic folk rock band from Wigan. Over the years, they have risen to become festival favourites, with their first two albums finding favour with critics, broadcasters and music fans alike.
They continue to develop an enviable reputation for the quality of their song writing, recorded work and live performances.
The band was forged in the smouldering embers of 90s Folk/punk band, The Tansads. Following an emotional series of reunion concerts in 2010, its members chose to tread the boards under a new name – Merry Hell – in order to reflect their new impetus, new hopes and, most importantly, new songs.
Fortune favoured commitment: the day after the first 4-song demo was finished, the band’s manager, Damian Liptrot, attended a music business conference, where a copy of the demo was picked up off the floor by Steve Heap of Mrs Casey Records as he swept up after the event. He played it in his car on the way home and, a quick phone call and an amicable meeting later, the band had a recording deal!
When the word gets round that they are in town tickets will go fast so get in quick!
Performance ends at approximately 9.45pm
