A recent excursion to the 25th Anniversary Music NL Conference and Awards yielded numerous discoveries you will see on Stanfest stages in 2018. Rum Ragged have created their own special formula and sound while following a path blazed by such great bands as the Irish Descendants, the Fables, Shannyganock and the Navigators.
From spirited instrumentals to heartfelt ballads, they pay homage to the greats that came before them while carving out a fresh, unique sound of their own. While their pub shows have transformed into festival headlining gigs in a very short span of time, they are equally comfortable performing in both types of venues. Rum Ragged released their debut album in the summer of 2016, and already it has received widespread attention and acclaim with two Music NL nominations for Album of the Year and Folk Roots Recording.
