The Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week commencing Saturday 24 May is the new CD from Megson called ‘In a Box’.
Ross Macfadyen spoke to Stu Hanna and Debbie Hanna who are the husband and wife duo called Megson.
Three times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and double winners of the 2011 Spiral Earth Awards, they draw heavily on their Teesside heritage to create a unique brand of folk music. Their 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’
In the eight years since Megson began, the duo have played up and down the country, gaining a devoted fanbase and selling out many of their extensive tour dates. Publications like MOJO, The Financial Times, Uncut, Sunday Express and The Guardian state: ‘the most original duo on the folk scene’.
Album of the Week, Saturday 24 May 12 noon and 12 midnight and Monday 26 May 7.00pm and Catch Up anytime.
