A very welcome return to Harwell Village Hall for the amazing Alt folk band Ranagri who are a combination of Irish and English musicians; Dónal Rogers (Vocals/Guitar), Eliza Marshall (Flutes/ Whistles), Ellie Turner (Electric Harp) and Joe Danks (Bodhrán/Guitar).
Since forming in 2013, Ranagri have recorded three studio albums at Grammy Award Winning Record Label Stockfisch Records, with their latest record ‘Playing For Luck’ released in January 2019.
Acclaimed previous albums are Fort of the Hare (2014) and The Great Irish Songbook with pop legend Tony Christie (2015). ‘Voices’, recorded at Real World Studios and produced by Grammy-nominated producer Graeme Pleeth, and ‘Tradition’, both released on Goatskin Records in 2016.
Their Festival performances include Cambridge, Gate to Southwell, Wath, Lyme Folk Weekend, Trinity, Bloom (Dublin) and Purbeck. No strangers to large venues, Ranagri have performed at Birmingham Symphony Hall, Fairfield Halls, The Union Chapel, Buxton Opera House and Camac Harp Festival in France to name a few. Combining their love for world music, they have collaborated with top Indian musician Kuljit Bhamra OBE, and members of Britten Sinfonia at The Bhavan Centre, London.
Ranagri toured in 2017 with Justin Currie (of Del Amitri) at Islington Assembly Halls, Perth Concert Hall, Holmfirth Picturedrome and Cambridge Junction, followed by a tour of Scotland and Germany whilst writing and recording their latest album ‘Playing For Luck’ at Stockfisch Studios throughout 2018.
Combining superb classical flute and harp playing, with fantastic singing, guitar-playing and percussion on beautiful, rousing and uplifting original songs and tunes, it's no wonder that Ranagri are Tony Christie's band of choice. A performance not to be missed!
