This autumn, Shrewsbury’s Hive is delivering another season of the very finest folk with its Uptown Folk series, including a visit from acclaimed husband and wife duo Megson on Friday 6 October, followed on Saturday 26 October by Bella Hardy, who has performed with the likes of Mary Chapin Carpenter.
Megson bring an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars. Four times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and double winners of the Spiral Earth Awards, they draw heavily on their Teesside heritage to create a truly unique brand of truly British folk. Rob Denslow of the Guardian called them “the most original duo on the folk scene”.
