The Young'uns: The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff

Booking information

Event details

Three time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners, The Young’uns, present a new and unique piece of modern folk theatre.

'The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff' is the story of one man’s adventure from begging on the streets in the north of England to fighting against fascism in the Spanish Civil War, taking in the Hunger Marches and the Battle of Cable Street.

It’s a timely, touching and often hilarious musical adventure following the footsteps of one working class hero who witnessed some of the momentous events of the 1930s.

With their trademark harmony, honesty and humour the Teesside trio bring together 16 specially composed songs, spoken word, striking imagery and the real recorded voice of Johnny himself, to tell a remarkable human story oozing with modern relevance.
