Merry Hell [+]

Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

Merry Hell 1

Merry Hell: A Northern based 7-piece offering blistering folk/rock with a message. Uplifting, inspiring and insightful in equal measure with an interesting past and a promising future.

Launched in 2011, Merry Hell combine male and female vocals, mandolin, electric guitars, bass, drums and keyboards with an ambition to revolutionise the genre.

Musically they range from the anthemic to the intimate whilst combining lyrical playfulness with astute observation and comment, they offer your favourite songs that you haven’t yet heard plus a live experience that is both infectious and inspiring.  A band with a history, a pedigree and most importantly, a promise for the future.

Merry Hell has risen phoenix-like from the embers of 90’s cult rabble-rousers The Tansads.  – for many who knew them, the finest band never to make it BIG – a quasi folk-punk-rock orchestra that enjoyed a career spanning 5 albums and countless tours. Brought together again in 2010, for 3 triumphant reunion gigs at their spiritual home of The Citadel, St Helens, the venue for their celebratory live album, ‘Drag Down the Moon’.

As the dust settled on the reunion shows, the decision had been made that a revitalized band should take the spirit of The Tansads forward into a new era. So Merry Hell was raised.

The Kettle brothers, John, Bob, and Andrew are back, joined by John’s wife, Virginia, who brings both acoustic guitar and the perfect vocal foil to Andrew’s gravelly delivery. Former Tansads, Lee Goulding on keyboards and drummer Andy Jones consolidate the line-up, completed by bassist Andrew Dawson.

Known for their original, emotionally charged and anthemic songs, this band are just as much at home producing exquisitely crafted recordings in the studio as they are in their high-energy assaults on the souls of live audiences.

Martyn Joseph [+]

£16.00 Tickets


Martyn Joseph 3

Martyn Joseph is as performer like no other.

He’s a jaw dropping guitar player who has developed a unique percussive style, teamed up with a powerful show stopping voice, and has been called “The Welsh Springsteen”, but there are also shades of John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews there may be – but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives.

Juxtaposition is a key theme in Martyn’s work. The simplicity and the complexity of the human condition and all that it encompasses is underpinned with a heady promise of hope. There is a versatility to Martyn’s music that is hard to categorise. Many have tried, resulting in labels such as Folk, Rock, Soul, Folk Funk and Americana; all of which somehow miss the mark. But sometimes music doesn’t need a defining genre and with the ability to articulate a sense of the bigger picture, Martyn’s music and social commentary manage to empower and speak for many. His songs are pictures, and stories, and feelings all put to music and delivered by a master craftsman.

2014 saw him take the spirit of his music onto a more practical footing with the launch of his “Let Yourself Trust”, a not-for-profit organisation which aims to make a small difference out of great love and commitment by challenging injustice wherever it’s found, educating via advocacy, campaigning for human rights, and raising issues that have been forgotten or ignored via fundraising initiatives, thus bringing about greater awareness for beautiful people in powerless situations.

Autumn 2015 will mark the release of Martyn’s brand new studio album, and he’ll be showcasing these new songs, along with other familiar and much loved material.

Martyn Joseph. A unique talent driven by passion and love for his trade, continues to write, sing and play from the heart.

 “Springsteen-indebted Americana, suspended folk chords glistening beneath troubadour tales, his lyrical eloquence still inspired almost 30 years on from his debut” – MOJO

“One of acoustic music’s most original voices, and most forward looking of his generation of singer/songwriters”? Q Magazine

“A profound experience”? The Boston Globe

“Songs of social commentary as much as love, with a rootsy sensibility”? Time Out

“Written with craft, performed with passion”? Financial Time

Thea Gilmore – Christmas Party [+]

£16 Tickets


Thea Gilmore 2013

“Here’s to tonic, here’s to gin, here’s to sparks and here’s to gasoline…” You’re The Radio

We are lucky to have musicians like Thea Gilmore, musicians that want more from themselves and more from music than some pre-formed, whistle-friendly cud, something to chew on but never fully digest. In an age where artists – male and female – tend to be either hyper-sexualised or completely neutered, Gilmore is that rare creature, an actual adult with a heart and a soul, a grown up with an opinion. Thea Gilmore is a real person tackling the sort of issues real people deal with every day, only, unlike the rest of us, she tackles those issues with an utterly beautiful voice and songs that touch on folk and jazz and rock and Americana.

Not for no reason does Bruce Springsteen buy her records, do artistes ranging from Martha Wainwright to Mike Scott seek to collaborate with her, and not for no reason does Tom Waits’ celebrated percussionist Michael Blair appear on Murphy’s Heart, Gilmore’s tenth album – one that follows a sustained period of artistic and critical success.
