IT'S one of the most anticipated releases in folk music.

And for a sneak preview of Megan Henwood and Findlay Napier's The Story Song Scientist, they will play in the Borders.

Back in 2009, Megan won the BBC Young Folk Award, aged just 20, alongside her brother Joe.

Since then, she has gone on to become a formidable British talent.

And in 2017 she embarked on her first sold-out headline UK tour ahead of her third and finest album to date ‘River’.

More recently though Megan has teamed up with one of the finest songwriters and storytellers of the contemporary Scottish folk scene.

Findlay Napier is an insurgent talent who made his name touring and recording with multi-award winning traditional Scottish folk band Back of the Moon.

In his more recent projects his song-writing took centre stage and was described by The Sunday Herald as 'genuine songcraft and wit following in the Difford & Tilbrook tradition'.

Findlay is also well known as the host of Celtic Connections’ Late Night Sessions and for his Hazy Recollections concert series which showcases the very best in new roots music.

Megan and Findlay met a songwriting retreat in 2016 in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, run by the English Folk and Dance Song Society and co-wrote some songs together which resulted in the forthcoming EP.

The Story Song Scientist will be released on Dharma Records on March 15.

And just a few days earlier - Monday, March 11 to be precise - they will play together at the String Theory club night in Hawick.

Tickets are available on the door.
