New Mills Town Hall Presents The Young'Uns on May 4th
BBC Radio2 Folk Awards Best Group Winners 2015
The Young’uns are a force of nature on stage. Their irrepressible humour, infectious love for harmony singing, passion for storytelling and commitment to maintaining the tradition of social commentary have quickly made them one of the most sought after acts on the English folk scene with the rare ability to make audiences laugh and cry in equal measure.
They have performed alongside Billy Bragg at Glastonbury, opened the main stage at Cambridge Folk Festival, recorded a memorable live session on BBC Radio 2, held a host of intimate rural singing weekends, visited dozens of schools and appeared at over 40 festivals at home and abroad.
2015 sees the release of their 4th album and a major tour to celebrate their 30th birthdays. Inspired by the actions of a group of Stockton residents who chased a Benefits Street film crew from their doors, The Young’uns new album ‘Another Man’s Ground’ celebrates working class heroes of the past and present with powerful and poignant tales of struggle, poverty and peace.
