Megson Presents : The Herald
Wednesday 18th October
The Water Rats Tavern
Kings Cross, London
Join us for one more chance to see this unique collaboration at the iconic Water Rats Tavern in London, Kings Cross. We’ll be celebrating the release of an Audio CD of The Herald and you could be one of the first to get your hands on a copy!
On Wednesday October 18th folk duo Megson will be re-united with playwright / actor Kieran Knowles and double bass player John Parker for a special showcase concert of their show – The Herald.
Watch four times BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Nominees Megson have their music and stories brought to life as Knowles weaves his story throughout the evening. This story is one of an unnamed journalist who returns to his home town to work for his local paper and it looks at the courage it takes to investigate truths, the danger of reporting realities and the pressure we put upon stories.
Megson and Kieran will once again be joined by the phenomenal double bass player John Parker (Nizlopi) who adds another level to Megson’s already breathtaking music.
