Megson at The Wesley Centre

by | 5 June 2022 | Music, Rotherham

Live music returns to The Wesley Centre in Maltby on Saturday 18th June with a much-anticipated concert from the acclaimed and multi award-winning folk-roots duo Megson.

Four times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and double winners of the Spiral Earth Awards, Megson comprises husband and wife duo Stu and Debbie Hanna that draw heavily on their Teesside heritage to create a truly unique brand of folk music. They bring an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies, piano accordion, driving rhythmic guitars, mandola and banjo.

Megson has gained fame on the British folk scene, not only for their arresting and intelligent song writing, but for their exquisite musicianship and northern humour.

In 2019 they released the album ‘Contradicshun’, gaining them even more critical acclaim including Folk Album of the Week from the Sunday Times. Legendary folk broadcaster Mike Harding said: “Megson have brought out a constant stream of absolutely stunning albums over the years and this is no exception. A cracker of an album”.

2022 sees them back on the road promoting a brand new studio album ‘Unknown Waters’ – a collection of songs from North Eastern songwriters.
