Get ready for Part 2 of the highly successful collaborative tour featuring Megan Henwood and Findlay Napier (aka The Story Song Scientists). They met at Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh in 2016 – a few hours into an EFDSS (English Folk Dance Song Society) run song-writing retreat. They are outside drinking their 7th coffee of the morning! Napier’s driven nine hours from Glasgow and is a bit wobbly. Henwood’s back from a month-long writing trip to Nashville and she is jet lagged and delusional.“Fancy writing a song about maths?” Napier enquires. And so the seed for this songwriting partnership was sewn. 


Their collaboration has led to the creation of songs about a hermit known as The North Pond Phantom, WBAI host Bob Fass’ lifesaving broadcast on 6th Nov 1971, Georg Cantor’s struggle with infinity, maths and God plus something about Shepherds and leaders. They are yet to write a song about pickup trucks…or beer!


If ever an artist called on the elements in her songwriting, it’s Megan Henwood. The distinguished English singer-songwriter is far too self-deprecating to describe herself as a force of nature, but her third album ‘River’ reaffirms her unique ability to create roots musicof beguiling purity from what’s around her.


One of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene Findlay Napier is an insurgent talent that comes on like a Caledonian Loudon Wainwright. Distilled to artful acoustic guitar and Napier’s remarkable voice his most recent album ‘Glasgow’ captures the timeless essence of one of the world’s great cities.


“Two of the UK’s finest songwriters” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
