Award-winning folk duo, Megson, who played at Cambridge Folk Festival last year, will be at The Old Bull in Royston on Friday, September 29 as part of a nationwide tour.
The husband and wife, Debs and Stu Hanna, she on vocals, whistle, piano accordion and he on guitar, mandola and banjo, entertain with their musicianship and northern humour. Last year, they also released their new album Good Times Will Come Again.
They met while singing in Cleveland Youth Choir before moving to London to allow Debbie to study classical music while Stu became involved with a progressive rock band. In 2004, they began making their own music and released their first album, On The Side, while performing at acoustic clubs around London.
Megson named themselves after Debbie’s family dog, who at the time had just died. They had originally decided upon The Ghost of Meg, but their family and friends convinced them that it sounded like a death-metal band.
The Old Bull is at 56 High Street, Royston, SG8 9AW. Tickets are £15 from 01763 260556 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
