We are delighted to welcome Ranagri to The Old King's Head on Saturday March 16th, 2019.

Alt folk band Ranagri are a combination of Irish and English musicians; Dónal Rogers (Vocals/Guitar), Eliza Marshall (Flutes/ Whistles), Ellie Turner (Electric Harp/ Piano) and Joe Danks (Bodhrán/ Percussion, Tenor 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’, were both released on Goatskin Records in 2016. 

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 tours of Scotland and Germany whilst writing and recording their latest album ‘Playing For Luck’ at Stockfisch Studios in 2018.

Here's a great review of their brand new album from John Whalley for Folk Radio https://www.folkradio.co.uk/2019/01/ranagri-playing-for-luck/
