“Savagely perceptive lyrics, ear catching vocals and 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, and we’re delighted to be welcoming back to the beautiful Square Tower following their two previous sell out shows here in the past.

Combining an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies, and driving rhythmic guitars, Megson have gained a reputation not only for their arresting and intelligent songwriting, but also for their exquisite musicianship and northern humour. Comprising Debs Hanna (Vocals, Whistle, Piano Accordion) and Stu Hanna (Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo, Vocals), Megson have been described as “the most original duo on the British folk scene” by The Guardian, and as FRoots Magazine puts is “if you don’t like the music here then you have a problem!”.

“Simply brilliant!” (Sunday Express)

Liking to keep busy, Megson have recorded thirteen studio albums across their twenty year career, gaining 4 & 5 star reviews from The Guardian, Mojo, The Telegraph, Uncut, The Financial Times whilst The Observer pronounced them “a force in the folk revival”.

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!

“Relevant, thought-provoking songs that would make Woody Guthrie proud!” (Acoustic Magazine)
