MERRY HELL is a band founded on the ever evolving Folk tradition – music made by the people and shared by the people.

Though our hearts and souls are tuned to the songs which came before us, we bring you new words and music forged from our own experiences, from the lows and the loves of our lives. Our art is energy and our hope is unity. Our pleasure is to please: let the audience be the acid test and let the music speak for itself.

It is a well-established fact that if you see Merry Hell live, you will leave with a big grin on your face. Their music is rousing, joyous, uplifting and totally infectious and probably contagious [in a good way, of course].

"The band's power folk with a social conscience is a way to keep a party going or even started if someone else hasn't already done that part for you."

"Call it power folk, call it punk folk, whatever you want to call it, call it a good time. This is in your face folk music, with more than a hint of social justice, delivered up tempo with plenty of aggression".
