MERRY HELL AND THE JAR FAMILY LEAD LATEST WAVE OF ADDITIONS. The two bands will play The Darby and Joan Hall on Saturday August 26th.

Merry Hell is an eight-piece folk-rock band with a history, a pedigree and a bright future. They have risen to become festival favourites, their first two albums finding favour with critics, broadcasters and music fans alike. They are continuing to develop an enviable reputation for the quality of their song writing, recorded work and live performances. With very special guests The Jar Family. Imagine, if you can, Steam Punk infused Bob Dylan wrestling The Pogues with Bez in a top-hat. Intrigued?! You should be…

Earlier that day, Jon Palmer Acoustic Band and The Duncan McFarlane Band will play a special co-headline show in the same venue.

 

The Jon Palmer Acoustic Band are best described as “a cross between The Pogues and Oysterband, with a bit of The Waterboys and The Saw Doctors thrown in for good measure”. The Duncan McFarlane Band have gone from strength to strength since forming in 2000. Their heady blend of traditional folk, with driving rhythm and vibrant energy, has gone down a storm with festival audiences across the UK – don’t miss ‘em!
