Merry Hell

This will be the sixth year that we’ve welcomed the fabulous Merry Hell Acoustic to help us celebrate another great year of music at Grateful Fred’s.

Merry Hell are one of the UK’s premier festival bands guaranteed to get you singing along to their uniquely original songs. In their own words…

“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…”

Please come and join us for the final Grateful Fred Night of 2018 and we promise that you will have a wonderful night of original acoustic music at it’s finest.

Steve Chapman-Smith

Steve Chapman-Smith has performed and recorded with bands Ada Wilson and keeping dark, Just Frank, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Ghostdance, Fiat Lux, Stranger than Fiction, and The Troubadors.

Has had the pleasure of recording 4 John Peel sessions at the BBC Maida vale studios with Red Lorry Yellow Lorry and Ghostdance.

The last 3 years have seen Steve following a solo career playing acoustic shows and releasing 3 CD’s “Rise”, “Justice” and ” The Outsider” gritty songs about real life with no rose tinted glasses!
