Megson

One of the most original political folk sets of the year. Ewan MacColl would have been impressed.” 4* Guardian (Robin Denselow) “People ask where all the protest songs have gone, they should listen to Megson. An iron fist inside a velvet musical glove” R2 Magazine 4* Maverick 4* – EDS Magazine 4* “Relevant, thought-provoking songs that would make Woody Guthrie proud” Acoustic Magazine “one of the top albums of 2016” – Mike Harding ALBUM OF THE WEEK FATEA “Lyrically there’s a sharpness and ingenuity. The Hannas make a beeline for the poignant as well as being able to keep in touch with the commonplace. Megson have enough clout and confidence with their own material to carry them free from what some might see as the bonds of trad song in this unassuming, attention-grabbing collection. One which is set with absolute jewels.” Louder Than War “Thanks heavens for folk like Megson who shun hypocrisy and decide to call it like it is.” Living Tradition “Stu and Debbie have produced a collection of songs tempering their canny ‘how it is’ political observation with humour and pathos, enabling optimism to shine through. GTWCA may well turn out to be their breakthrough album.” fRoots “Astute observation and social comment, striking a defiant note of contemporary relevance from the off.” Songlines “Awash with their own savagely perceptive lyrics, ear catching vocals and melodies to die for. This is destined to become a classic contemporary folk album and will if justice prevails, bring Megson the plaudits they so richly deserve.” Folkwords “Megson are among those writing the future history of folk. Good Times Will Come Again is a musical snapshot of now. The Hannas have captured a chunk of British social history in way that is entertaining, thought provoking, great to listen to and extremely well-constructed with nuances which are incredibly subtle. These songs will be a reference point for folk singers and musicians of the future as well a wonderful example of what more folk music could and should be doing.” Folk All Radio Coverage Including: BBC RADIO 2 Folk Show, BBC RADIO 2 Bob Harris , BBC RADIO 3 World on 3, The Mike Harding Folk Show.
