Description

Megson present a brand new collection of children's folk songs - "Little Bird". Seven years since releasing their "When I Was A Lad" album, husband & wife folk duo Megson have followed it up other another collection of folk songs old & new entitled "Little Bird".

One half of the duo Stu says "ever since we released When I Was A Lad we've had countless families asking us when there will be a follow up! We've been told on many occasions that their children have worn the cd out its been played that many times on car journeys. We've been promising to make this for the last five years so we're chuffed to by finally able to share it with the world!"

Megson, aka Debbie & Stu Hanna, have been writing, recording & performing traditional & contemporary folk music for fifteen years. They have been nominated four times in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and have won three Spiral Earth Awards.  Megson draw heavily on their Teesside heritage to create a unique style of folk music. They combine original compositions with traditional music from the north east of England arranged for vocals, mandola, guitar, piano accordion & whistle. In 2010 they were described as "The most original duo on the British folk scene" by Robin Denselow in The Guardian. 

Along with other their nine other regular folk albums this was produced and recorded by Megson in the home studio (a converted garage) and performed on a plethora of folk instruments including banjo, accordion, penny whistle, octave mandala and many more.  It is very much a homemade affair with their  daughter Lola and their dog Wizard even making guests appearances. There are a few nods to nature on the album with a song about dogs and two about birds, as well as a little colour in bird spotting guide which comes with the CD album.

In 2014 Megson developed their concert series for young audiences - 'Family Folk Show with Megson'. Throughout the show Megson blend their infectious mix of heavenly vocals and lush harmonies to create a gentle, interactive concert specifically tailored for young children It features children's folk songs both old and new from their 'When I was a Lad' & "Little Bird"  albums. Between each song, the performers playfully involve the audience, introducing ideas, the instruments and stories that will feature in the songs. Family Folk Show has completed sell out shows at prestigious small venues including Half Moon Theatre Children's Theatre, Cambridge Junction, MAC Birmingham, artsdepot, Kings Place and Colchester Arts Centre.
