More about Megson

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 fame on the British folk scene, not only for their arresting and intelligent songwriting, but also 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".

Summer 2016 saw the release of their much anticipated new studio album Good Times Will Come Again, gaining them much critical acclaim.  "One of the most original political folk sets of the year.  Ewan MacColl would have been impressed." said The Guardian.  "Relevant, thought-provoking songs that would make Woody Guthrie proud" said Acoustic Magazine.  Folk broadcasting legend Mike Harding described it as "One of the top albums of 2016".

And during all this time, Stu even managed to be involved with other artists, producing and recording award-winning music for Show of Hands, Kelly Oiver, Lucy Ward, Faustus, The Willows, Sam Kelly and The Young'Uns.

Megson launch their eagerly awaited new studio album in Spring 2019 in conjunction with a full UK Tour.
