Four times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and double winners of the Spiral Earth Awards, Megson - aka Stu and Debbie Hanna - draw heavily on their Teesside heritage to create a truly unique brand of Folk music.
This husband and wife duo brings an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars. Performing as Megson, Debs (vocals, whistle, piano accordion) and Stu (guitar, mandola, banjo) have gained fame on the British Folk scene not only for their arresting and intelligent song writing 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’.
Tickets: £16 Full. £15 Concessions.
Great to have this wonderful duo back with us again following their performance in May 2014. They were first with us in 2008 and it was immediately apparent that we were listening to something truly special. A decade on, our initial views have proved to be fully justified as Debbie and Stu are now one of the most sought-after duos on the circuit. This gig should not be missed as they are renowned for their easy stage manner and vibrant performances.
