Four times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and double winners of the Spiral Earth Awards, Megson draw heavily on their Teesside heritage to create a truly unique brand of folk music. The husband and wife duo bring an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars. Comprising Debs Hanna (Vocals, Whistle, Piano Accordion) and Stu Hanna (Guitar, Mandola, Banjo), Megson have gained notoriety on the British folk scene, not only for their arresting and intelligent songwriting, but for their exquisite musicianship and northern humour. They’ve even made time to collaborate with the likes of Sam Kelly and Show of Hands.
