After bursting onto the folk scene 3 years ago, The Young’uns have fast become one of the most popular, entertaining and sought after live acts today. Hailing from the north east, the Hartlepool trio ooze charm, talent and an abiding enthusiasm for traditional song. Sean Cooney, David Eagle and Michael Hughes 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 is present in their repertoire, and is delivered with originality and flair. They are effortlessly entertaining, with an irreverent sense of humour that engages every audience they have ever performed for.
‘When Our Grandfathers Said No’ is their fourth album – and expected to launch them well and truly onto centre stage of the UK 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.
The new album is released officially by Navigator Records on the 10th September and is also available now at Young’uns gigs.
