Award-winning folk duo Megson are staging a concert for pre-school children at the Cambridge Junction on Sunday, April 22.

The Megson Family Folk Show will feature children’s folk songs, including old songs and new, from the group’s new album When I was a Lad.

Husband and wife act, Stu and Debbie Hanna, met while singing in the Cleveland Youth Choir before moving to London to allow Debbie to study classical music while Stu became involved with a progressive rock band.

In 2004, they released their first album, On The Side, while performing at acoustic clubs around London.

Megson named themselves after Debbie’s family dog, who at the time had just died. They had originally decided on calling it The Ghost of Meg, but their family and friends convinced them that it sounded like a

death-metal band.

Performances are at 11.30am and 2.30pm. Tickets, £10 adults and £6 for children and are available from: 01223 511511 or
