Three 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 & 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 fame on
the British folk scene, not only for their arresting & intelligent songwriting, but for
their exquisite musicianship and northern humour. As fRoots Magazine puts it ‘if you
don’t like the music here then you have a problem.’
“(In A Box) brackets Stu and Debbie Hanna among the upper echelon of Brit folk songwriters.” Colin Irwin (MOJO).
