The Young’uns

Expect heart-on-the-sleeve storytelling, beautiful lyrics, warm harmonies and relentless repartee from The Young’uns at this special Voices Unwrapped show for Kings Place.


Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle write and sing folk songs for today. 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.

Born from empathy, crafted with care, fired by hope, and shared with joy, The Young’uns’ songs have been described as ‘a heartfelt secular hymnary for these troubled times and a rallying call for humanity’ (The Scotsman). They have led the band to three BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (including Best Album in 2018 for Strangers) and the creation of the acclaimed international theatre show The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff (based upon their 2019 album of the same name).

Nearly twenty years after accidentally stumbling into the alien world of their local folk club as drunken teenagers, (and gaining their cureless 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.

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

“The harmonies are glorious, the wit is waspish. The songs are powerful, the banter is relentless and the audience is happy. What’s not to like?” ★★★★★ Guardian

“Glorious… celebrating the uncelebrated with warmth, vigour and passion” ★★★★ MOJO
