The husband and wife duo appear at The Place Theatre in Bedford on Thursday February 4.

They play an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars.

Comprising Debs and Stu Hanna, Megson have gained fame on the British folk scene, not only for their arresting and intelligent songwriting, but for their exquisite musicianship and northern humour. As Roots Magazine puts it: “If you don’t like the music here then you have a problem’

The year 2014 saw the release of In A Box, their much anticipated brand new studio album. It features guest performances by Seth Lakeman, Jess Morgan and The Willows, and was named one of the best folk albums of 2014 by The Telegraph, as well as earning an Album of the Week title from the Sunday Express. Colin Irwin wrote in Mojo: “In A Box brackets Stu and Debbie Hanna among the upper echelon of Brit folk songwriters.”

The doors open at 7.30pm and the concert starts at 8pm. Tickets are £10 in advance and £12 on the door.
