Video of the Week

Megson - The Longshot

A 'Songs from the Shed' video at the Larmer Tree Festival a couple of years ago.

From the Guardian : Debbie and Stu Hanna, better known as Megson, are the most original duo on the British folk scene. She is classically trained, her husband is a former punk, and they specialise in self-composed melodies and matching intimate harmony singing against their own multi-instrumental acoustic playing, driven on by mandolin and accordion.


The husband & wife duo bring an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars.

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.
