The Young’uns

The Young’uns

Details

The Young’uns have cemented their reputation at the forefront of the English folk scene in the last few years. Having taken their uplifting voices, powerful songs, spine tingling harmonies and raucous humour to audiences across the UK and around the world, they won the title of ‘Best Group’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award in 2015 and 2016. The Teesside trio return in 2017 with an extensive October UK tour and an eagerly anticipated new album, ’Strangers’, which is a collection of folk songs for our times – a homage to the outsider, a eulogy for the wayfarer and a hymn for the migrant. 

“The harmonies are glorious, the wit is waspish. The songs are powerful, the banter is relentless and the audience is happy. What’s not to like?” 

????? Colin Irwin, The Guardian  

“Magnificent - destined to become hailed as national treasures before long” 

????? Maverick  

“Strong songs of social commentary” 

???? The Telegraph  

???? The Times  

“One of he best live acts I have ever seen – quite amazing – at the top of their profession, performing with vim, vigour and utter integrity” – Mike Harding

“Incredibly moving…..The Young’uns are life enhancers” - Sean Rafferty, BBC Radio 3
