Event details

The Young’uns’ live shows are renowned roller coaster rides.

With heart-on-the-sleeve storytelling, beautiful lyrics, warm harmonies and relentless repartee, Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle (the award-winning stand-up comedian) write and sing folk songs for today.

Their carefully crafted songs have led the band to three BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and the creation of the acclaimed international theatre show 'The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff'.

Nearly twenty years after accidentally stumbling into the alien world of their local folk club as drunken teenagers, (and gaining their name in the process) these three thirtysomething friends from Stockton and Hartlepool have never lost the joy of that first night of singing together. Whether performing in front of 5,000 people at Glastonbury Festival, writing a song about pigs with a group of school children, or presenting a programme on BBC Radio 4, Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle are just the same.

2022 sees The Young’uns launch their 'Tiny Notes' project. Each date of their April tour will feature a live recording of audience choruses for their forthcoming album, with the band urging everyone to discover the joy of singing together that they found one night as teenagers in Stockton-on-Tees.

"Hugely captivating-performing with great verve and humour - a brilliant folk act!" - Stuart Maconie, BBC Radio 6 music
