Product description

Product Description

Twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Group winners (2015 & 2016), The Young'Uns' 4th studio album Strangers' 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 Young'Uns interweave inspirational stories from the past with tales from today's world to create a timely, thought provoking and ultimately uplifting piece in which Syrian refugees, Gay Rights campaigners, aid workers and have-a-go heroes rub shoulders with First World War soldiers, Caribbean immigrants and Victorian mavericks. Their boldest most resonant work to date.

The Young'uns have proved themselves a unique proposition – writing and performing a cappella or subtly accompanied songs that tell it how it is alongside traditional songs from their native North-East and further afield – songs of conscience, songs of warmth and wit, songs to provoke, songs to inspire.

Renowned for their pitch perfect harmonies and rapid fire humour, their live show undeniably has the human touch. Always engaging, frequently heart-warming, they have built an enviable audience rapport. They are an act that truly takes the cliché out of the "make you laugh, make you cry" tag.

Just two years after giving up their day jobs, Stockton Folk Club's star pupils have had a milestone year with the release of their third studio album Another Man's Ground, an appearance at America's Folk Alliance, collectively celebrating their 30th birthdays and racking up accolades including Best Group in the FATEA Awards and Best Live Act in the Spiral Awards.

A decade of performance around the country, national radio sessions, more than 40 festival appearances (Cambridge to Glastonbury) and increasingly acclaimed album releases has delivered a gregarious, sharply honed, pull no punches act that clinched the Best Group trophy at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in Cardiff – a hugely popular result that saw them beating off opposition including the mighty Bellowhead.

Beguiling audiences around the world, they seamlessly switch from beautiful ballads to brilliant banter, from profoundly poignant songs to infectiously irreverent humour. This, combined with their passion for storytelling and commitment to maintaining the tradition of social commentary, has led to five star reviews, live sessions on BBC Radio 2, 3 and documentaries on Radio 4 as well as countless sell out shows and main stage festival appearances throughout the UK and abroad.

"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

"One of the 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
