“One of the most popular and entertaining acts on the Folk scene today.” —Jez Lowe
“Singing brilliant songs as they should be sung–A great live act.” —Fay Hield
After bursting onto the folk scene three years ago, The Young’uns have fast become one of the most popular, entertaining and sought after live acts in the UK today. Hailing from the northeast, the Hartlepool trio ooze bags of charm, talent and an abiding enthusiasm for traditional song. Sean Cooney (vocals), David Eagle (keyboards and piano accordion) and Michael Hughes (guitar) bring freshness and dynamism to their arrangements of close harmony songs, both with and without accompaniment. Everything from traditional sea and working songs to more recent compositions are present in their repertoire, and are delivered with originality and flair. They are effortlessly entertaining, with an irreverent sense of humour that engages every audience.
When Our Grandfathers Said No is their fourth album and is expected to launch them well and truly onto center stage of the neo-folk scene. Under the watchful eye of producer Stu Hanna (Megson), the guys serve up an irresistible plate of traditional song and close harmony singing backed on occasions by guitar, piano and accordion. In 2012, they joined top names such as Bellowhead, Bella Hardy and Lau by signing to Navigator Records in London, and have just returned from what could only be described as a “triumphant” performance at this year’s Cambridge Folk Festival as one of the festival’s “buzz” bands. The Young’uns will continue to “buzz” as their brand new album reaches parts and people that others have not yet reached—as well as sustain their substantial existing loyal fan base, as they continue to tirelessly tour—leaving no one disappointed along the way.
