“Glorious harmonies, waspish wit, powerful songs and relentless banter…..irresistible” ***** The Guardian
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.
