Findlay Napier & Megan Henwood 'The Story Song Scientists'

SUNDAY 10TH MARCH 2019

Doors 7.30pm

Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh 2016 and Megan Henwood and Findlay Napier are a few hours into an EFDSS 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 song writing partnership was sewn.

Their collaboration has led to the creation of songs about 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 and something about Shepards and leaders. They are yet to write a song about pickup trucks… or beer.

If ever an artist called on the elements in her song writing, 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 music of 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.
