Three times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and winners of three Spiral Earth Awards the husband and wife duo of Stu Hanna and Debbie Hanna hail from Teesside and draw heavily on this heritage to create their unique brand of folk music. T
heir infectious sound is a mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars and mandolas.
As FROOTS Magazine puts it ‘if you don’t like the music here then you have a problem’ Since the duo’s genesis in 2004 the couple have played up and down the country at numerous folk clubs and festivals picking up a strong fanbase along the way and selling out their extensive tour dates.
Their growing talent was recognised not only with 3 nominations for BEST DUO in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2009 & 2010 & 2011 but also with burgeoning interest from the major broadsheets. Their latest album ‘THE LONGSHOT’ has had rave reviews from the national press with 4 star reviews from MOJO, THE FINANCIAL TIMES, UNCUT, THE SUNDAY EXPRESS and THE GUARDIAN.
‘Megson have steadily established themselves as two of the freshest, most original performers in the latest folk revival’… ‘This album places them in the major league’ Robin Denslow – The Guardian
