If you’d like to come along, please use the contact page to drop us a line.
The combined talents of Stu and Debbie Palmer make the award winning duo ‘Megson’. It all began for Megson in 2004 when Stu and Debs, then living in South East London, armed themselves with a selection of original and traditional folk songs, combined their classical and punk backgrounds and started gigging on the London acoustic scene. Since then, Megson have gone from strength to strength, playing up and down the country at festivals, folk clubs, arts centres and acoustic venues.
The nomination for Megson in the category of best duo in the 2009 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards is well deserved recognition of their wonderful musical chemistry. Stu and Debbie Hanna create the most amazing vocal harmonies, allied with Stu’s blistering guitar style means that you have to keep checking the stage, as there sounds more than just two voices and one guitar.
Their third album Take Yourself A Wife was released in September 2008 to critical acclaim. The album consists of songs written from the 18th to 20th Centuries centred around Teeside, Newcastle and the North East. Megson have added their own superb arrangements and harmonies to create a mature, poignant yet infectiously joyful album.
When I Was A Lad, A Collection Of Childrens Folk Songs, was released in 2012, followed by a Live CD recorded at the Hitchin Folk Club in 2013. In A Box is their latest CD released last year.
