Ranagri, supported by The People Versus

Alt-folk band Ranagri 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.) They have recorded three studio albums at Grammy-Award-winning record label Stockfisch Records, with their latest 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, were both released on Goatskin Records in 2016.

Ranagri toured their latest album Playing For Luck, taking in tours with Justin Currie (of Del Amitri) at Islington Assembly Halls, Perth Concert Hall, Holmfirth Picturedrome and Cambridge Junction, followed by headline tours of Scotland and Germany.

In early 2020, they collaborated with the Omagh Community Youth Choir for a sensational celebration at The Bunting Festival in Belfast, followed by a short tour in Ireland. With many cancellations throughout 2020, Ranagri are looking forward to returning to Germany, Scotland and Ireland in 2021 and fulfilling their Main Stage engagements at many wonderful festivals including Towersey, Filey (headlining), Beardy, Wimborne Minster and more.

Currently embracing Lockdown, they are in the midst of recording their next ‘Tradition’ album, with a new download to be released every month.
