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). It's where Ranagri's Dónal Rogers family come from and still live today.
Consisting of flutes, Irish whistles, electric harp, bodhran, guitar, bouzouki and voices, Ranagri fuse celtic folk music with quality contemporary songwriting, enhanced by virtuosic instrumentals, vibrant rhythms and haunting melodies, all interlaced with vivid storytelling.
