Ranagri is a new project from four musicians who have recently come together to create some exciting new sounds. The four members – Jean Kelly, Donal Rogers, Eliza Marshall and Tad Sargent – also lead busy and varying musical lives separately. From performances in The Royal Albert Hall, broadcasts on Radio 3 and touring with Peter Gabriel to busy Trad Irish Sessions all over London. They have appeared with medieval fusion groups, top London Orchestras including The Philharmonia and BBC Concert Orchestra, and as soloists on soundtracks with the likes of James Horner, Ennio Morricone and Hans Zimmer. Further recordings for the BBC, ITV and for bands such as The White Stripes, The Divine Comedy and Radiohead are a regular part of their musical lives. They use this wealth of styles and experience, along with their longstanding love of folk music, to come together to form ‘Ranagri’.
Consisting of flutes, whistles, harps, bodhrans, guitars, bouzoukis and vocals, Ranagri fuse Celtic folk with original song writing and vibrant instrumentals, along with influences from folk music worldwide.
‘Echoes of Pentangle, Jethro Tull and new Celtic folk sounds - cemented by strong contemporary song writing’.
Presenter of RTÉ lyric fm's ‘Blue of the Night’.
