We are so happy to be returning to the beautiful gardens at Edge of Beyond for our Folk in the Barn Summer Garden Party.  This had become a wonderful feature of the Summer programme pre pandemic and we're looking forward to resuming the tradition. 

We're delighted that this year's special musical guests will be the brilliant duo - Stu and Debs Hanna - otherwise known as Megson.  There will also be an opening act, making the whole event last a little longer, as it was always over far too soon.


‘The most original duo on the British folk scene.’
Robin Denslow – The Guardian

‘A force in the folk revival’
Neil Spencer – The Observer

Three times nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and double winners of the Spiral Earth Awards Megson draw heavily on their Teesside heritage to create a truly unique brand of folk music.

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’ .

“Their rich acoustic mix of miners, lovers, charlatans and whimsy is about as traditional as folk gets, but never sounds old or dulled.” said Q Magazine’s Andy Fyfe, while Colin Irwin wrote in MOJO “In A Box brackets Stu and Debbie Hanna among the upper echelon of Brit folk songwriters.” 

And during all this time, Stu even managed to be involved with other artists producing award winning album for SHOW OF HANDS, LUCY WARD, FAUSTUS, THE WILLOWS, & THE YOUNG’UNS.

Come and celebrate the end of the Summer Season with us in this beautiful garden.

Bring chairs/blankets/sun tan lotion/ waterproofs/umbrellas and a picnic!

We’ll supply the Pimms!
