‘Simply Brilliant’

The Sunday Express

‘Savagely perceptive lyrics, ear catching vocals & melodies to die for’

Louder Than War

Four times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and double 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 also for their exquisite musicianship and northern humour. Comprising Debs Hanna (Vocals, Whistle, Piano Accordion) and Stu Hanna (Guitar, Mandola, Banjo) MEGSON have been described as as “the most original duo on the British folk scene” by THE GUARDIAN and as FROOTS Magazine puts it ‘if you don’t like the music here then you have a problem’.

Liking to keep busy, MEGSON have recorded thirteen studio albums across their twenty year career gaining four & five star reviews from THE GUARDIAN, MOJO, THE TELEGRAPH, UNCUT, THE FINANCIAL TIMES whilst THE OBSERVER pronounced them ‘A force in the folk revival’. Even lockdown 2020 couldn’t hold them back as they performed a hugely popular series of live stream concerts to their growing army of followers.

And during all this time, Stu even managed to be involved with other artists producing & recording award winning music for SHOW OF HANDS, ODETTE MITCHEL, LUCY WARD, FAUSTUS & THE YOUNG'UNS.

Now they are back doing what they do best, on the road promoting a brand new studio album WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO SAY. Catch them if you can…
