Megan Henwood picks up a finished copy of her debut album ‘Making Waves’ for the first time, handling it with care like a gift she’s been anticipating. “This has been a really good day,” she smiles. “I’ve been waiting a long time for this.”
So has the growing legion of admirers of one of Britain’s most promising singer-songwriters. The wait has been completely worthwhile, because the winner of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award for 2009, when she was just 20, has been polishing her performing and writing skills with a maturity way beyond her years.
‘Making Waves’ may be her first album, but Megan has been places and done things, from giving up her talents in the cause of music therapy to touring with Eric Bibb, recording in Kathmandu and driving across Europe and Asia. Now, as we’ll hear, she’s preparing to live life on the road in the truest sense of the phrase.
The album is a collection of assured and imaginative work featuring guest appearances from an impressive array of contributors, including beloved British performer Joe Brown, his daughter Sam, Steve Marriott’s singing daughter Mollie, violinist Peter Knight of English folk treasures Steeleye Span, one-time Jethro Tull member Barrie Barlow and Megan’s younger brother, saxophonist Joe Henwood, with whom she won that prestigious folk award recognition.
Megan has been road-testing the album not just across the UK (including at her debut Glastonbury in 2010) but on her extensive worldwide travels. Now she gets to take these songs for a spin for the summer, with appearances at the Larmer Tree Festival, the Secret Garden Party, the Cambridge Folk Festival and more, and in unusual style, as she explains.
