Megson 26th November 2016

Megson,  with support from White Horse Whisperers

Saturday 26th November 8pm (doors 7:30pm) Sutton Benger Village Hall.  Tickets £13 in advance.



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’ .


2014 saw the release of In A Box, their much anticipated brand new studio album.

Featuring guest performances by Seth Lakeman , Jess Morgan & The Willows it was

not only named one of the Best Folk Albums of 2014 by The Telegraph but also The

Sunday Express – Album Of The Week.


“Their rich acoustic mix of miners, lovers, charlatans and whimsy is about as

traditional as folk gets, but never sounds old or dulled.” said Q Magazine’s Andy

Fyfe, while Colin Irwin wrote in MOJO “In A Box brackets Stu and Debbie Hanna

among the upper echelon of Brit folk songwriters.” .


And during all this time, Stu even managed to be involved with other artists

producing award winning album for SHOW OF HANDS, LUCY WARD,



‘The most original duo on the British folk scene.’

‘A force in the folk revival’
