Wesley Centre Live

by | 4 February 2024 | Music, Rother

Wesley Live resumes its concert programme on Friday 15th March at The Wesley Centre in Maltby with the much-anticipated return of acclaimed folk duo Megson.

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 combining an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars and 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, Mandola, Banjo), Megson have been described as ‘the most original duo on the British folk scene’ by The Guardian and, as Froots Magazine puts it, ‘if you don’t like the music here then you have a problem’.

Liking to keep busy, Megson have recorded 13 studio albums across their 20-year career to four- and five-star reviews across numerous respected outlets. Even lockdown 2020 couldn’t hold them back as they performed a hugely popular series of live stream concerts to their growing army of followers. And during all this time, Stu even managed to be involved with other artists, producing and recording award winning music for Show of Hands, Odette Mitchell, Lucy Ward and Faustus and the Young’uns.

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!

Tickets are £16.00 and available from the Wesley Centre reception on 01709 811118 or at www.wegottickets.com.
