Never miss another 'The Young Uns' show
The Young Uns
"Acappella and accompanied song from the folk/contemporary trio. Sean Cooney (vocals), David Eagle (guitar, vocals) and Michael Hughes (accordion, vocals) bring freshness and dynamism to their arrangements of close harmony songs. Everything from traditional sea and working songs to more recent compositions is present in their repertoire, and is delivered with originality and flair.
WHY? 'A fantastic repertoire, intricate and pleasing harmonies and fantastic patter to boot' Bromyard Folk Festival"

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.
Renowned for their pitch perfect harmonies and rapid fire humour, their live show undeniably has the human touch. 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 both the 2016 and 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
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 and 3 and documentaries on Radio 4 as well as countless sold out shows and festival appearances throughout the UK, Canada and Australia.
