Relentless were put together back in mid 2010s when multi folk award nominee Will Pound was asked to get a ceilidh band together for Bromyard Folk Festival.
With no preparation or planning the band he assembled played some absolute ‘belting tunage’ with tight arrangements and build ups giving the packed dance floor the impression they had been playing as a band for years.
This led to many other festival bookings up and down the country in the years that followed. At present, the original line consisting of the talented twin fiddles of Rosie Butler Hall & Manny Grimsley, mixed with the driving rhythmic backbone of Nick Haynes (cajon) & Dan Bones (guitar/bass) with Will on Melodeon & harmonicas are back in full swing, providing energy, enthusiasm & stage presence to Festivals near you in 2022 and beyond
