The Story Song Scientists
This gig is part of the highly successful collaborative tour featuring Megan Henwood and Findlay Napier (aka The Story Song Scientists).
Meghan and Findlay first met outside, on their 7th coffee of the morning, at the Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh in 2016 – a few hours into an EFDSS (English Folk Dance Song Society) ran song-writing retreat. Napier had driven nine hours from Glasgow and was a bit wobbly. Henwood was jut back from a month-long writing trip to Nashville and was jet lagged and delusional.
“Fancy writing a song about maths?” Napier enquired. And so the seed for this song writing 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!
“Two of the UK’s finest songwriters” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
“Intelligent songwriting and delightful voices in equal measure. The synergy between Megan and Findlay is palpable.” – David Evans, Folk Radio UK
“The Story Song Scientists prove that songwriting experiments can work extremely well” – Andy French, Oxford Mail
“Charming, fascinating and intelligent folk songs…these two voices sound like they were destined to sing together… two clever songwriters who create intriguing songs… and they both have wonderful voices by the way” – The Rocking Magpie
“Throughout the songs the pair never fail to produce lyrics that resonate…the variety and sheer beauty of the music on offer here is truly outstanding… Two of Britain’s finest songwriters together in one package. Not to be missed in my eyes” – Ian Cripps, Fatea Magazine
