Rack and Ruin – lively folk-rock

Rack and Ruin are a Warwickshire based folk-rock five-piece band playing a mixture of loud and lively folk-rock: fiddle driven traditional songs and tunes and jigs and reels – with added saxophone.

The Humber – First Friday Residency

We usually play on the First Friday of every month at The Humber in Coventry – but obviously the residency is on hold due to lockdown restrictions.  See the News page for more details.

Rack and Ruin are just as comfortable headlining a large music festival or performing at a wedding, birthday, house concert or other private party.  Their contemporary blend of lively folk rock, celtic, roots music is interwoven with foot-tapping jigs and reels that makes for an enjoyable and entertaining event.

Rack and Ruin do Barn Dances and Ceilidhs too – find out more on our ceilidh band website
