We are thrilled to welcome Rum Ragged back to the Citadel House. We enjoyed a lively evening with them in February of this year, and look forward to another great evening with these fine fellows.
Multi nominated and award winning Rum Ragged is a folk band from St. John’s, NL that infuses elements of traditional Newfoundland tunes and songs to make it their own. Members Mark Manning and Aaron Collis draw on their collective influences from growing up in rural communities across the province. While Rum Ragged is only just emerging as a group, Aaron and Mark have been heavily involved in the Newfoundland music scene for the past decade- performing either independently or with other groups.
Few traditional Newfoundland bands have risen as quickly in the ranks as Rum Ragged. Formed by singer/guitarist Mark Manning and singer/accordion player Aaron Collis just two years ago, Rum Ragged has garnered respect from a loyal, ever-growing fan base as well as their musical peers.
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.
