THREE-time winners of the prestigious BBC Folk Awards, The Young’uns are a unique act on the UK Folk and Acoustic scene.
These three brass-lunged lads from the north of England sing folk songs for our times with heart and humour.
This month, they will be playing at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis.
The Young’uns – Sean Cooney, David Eagle and Michael Hughes – originate from Stockton and have been singing traditional, original, and often strongly political, songs in powerful three-part harmony since they were teenagers.
Their latest album has been awarded five stars by The Guardian.
Speaking on their success, David said: “To think we had started out stumbling across folk music when we were teenagers at the Sun Inn in Stockton with people singing in their own accents and singing in harmony, we just became so enchanted by it.”
The Young’uns are playing at the Marine Theatre on Sunday, December 19. The show starts at 8pm and tickets cost £17.50 in advance at www.marinetheatre.com
