Four times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and winners of the Spiral Earth Awards MEGSON create a truly unique brand of folk music.
Combining an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars, MEGSON have gained a reputation not only for their arresting & intelligent songwriting, but for their exquisite musicianship and northern humour.
Debs Hanna (Vocals, Whistle, Piano Accordion) and Stu Hanna (Guitar, Mandola, Banjo) aka MEGSON have been described as as “the most original duo on the British folk scene” by THE GUARDIAN.
This performance will present a unique collaboration between MEGSON and playwright KIERAN KNOWLES (Operation Crucible, Chicken Soup).
