‘A force in the folk revival’ ~ The Observer
‘The most original duo on the British folk scene’ ~ The Guardian
Stu Hanna and Debbie Hanna are the brilliant husband & wife duo Megson. Three times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and double winners of the 2011 Spiral Earth Awards, they draw heavily on their Teesside heritage to create a unique brand of folk music. Their infectious sound is a mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars and mandolins. As fRoots Magazine puts it ‘if you don’t like the music here then you have a problem!’.
Their growing talent was recognised not only with 3 nominations for Best Duo in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards but with burgeoning interest from the major broadsheets – The Independent frequently list Megson in their Top Gigs To See. They’ve had a low-key year while their first child was born but now they’re back in action with a new CD (When I Was a Lad) and a busy tour diary.
