Chapel Sessions presents an evening of unique music from award winning acoustic duo Megson http://www.megsonmusic.co.uk at our new venue St. Edwards Church, Grange Rd, Netley, Southampton.
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.”
