Ranagri is a contemporary folk band of four musicians who have come together to create some exciting new music. Consisting of flutes; Irish whistles; electric harp; bodhran; guitar; bouzouki and voices, Ranagri fuse Celtic folk music with quality contemporary song writing,
enhanced by virtuosic instrumentals, vibrant rhythms and haunting melodies, all interlaced with vivid storytelling. They visited Lowdham last year when they provided the spell-binding accompaniment to Tony Christie, with whom they collaborated on the ‘Great Irish Songbook’.
Nestled between the Wicklow Mountains and Co Carlow, Ireland, lies an area of farmland; a place of untouched natural beauty, of peace and contemplation. This idyll is called Rathnagrew (pronounced Ran-ag-rye!).
Ranagri had a busy 2015/16 with performances at Cambridge, Gate to Southwell, Wath, Stourbridge and Purbeck Folk Festivals, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Folk on the Quay and combining their love for world music they have collaborated with top Indian Musicians at The Bhavan Centre, London – the largest Indian Music Cultural Centre outside of India which has hosted the likes of Ravi Shankar and George Harrison. 2016 saw them release a new album ‘Voices’ as well as touring extensively with Tony Christie .
How often do you hear a sound that’s completely new, which has great energy and immediately makes you want to dance?
I’ll be following Ranagri around, I hope they don’t mind…’
