Megson will be 'Pushing On' with UK dates in late 2017


UK folk duo Megson, fresh from a run of festival shows, will return to the road in September for the 'Pushing On' tour. Debs and Stu will be playing some of their favourite venues and a few new ones throughout the UK. Dubbed "The most original duo on the British folk scene" by The Guardian this looks like a good night out. More about the duo and the dates follow:

Four times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, and double winners of the Spiral Earth Awards, revered duo Megson hit the road once again in 2017, with a string of dates booked across the UK through September, October and November for their "Pushing On" tour.

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.”

We’ve had a fantastic summer of festivals and now can’t wait to get back out on the road again. We’ll be heading to some of our favourite venues and also some exciting new ones too... We’re really looking forward to sharing some new songs, some old songs and even a bit of banter with folk all across the country!
