"You're unlikely to hear anything more irresistible and more folky this year".

'Every now and again the Folk music world needs a gentle kick up the backside and we should be eternally grateful that the four members of Ranagri have slipped into their best Doc Martins to do just that'.  

Beverley Folk Club

'When the faces of one hundred plus people leaving a concert are, without exception, beaming from ear to ear, with many eagerly clutching their newly purchased and signed CDs, it stands a good chance that the evening has been a successful one. Such was the case last night as Ranagri made a triumphant return to St. Edith Hall'.
