Multi-award winning trio, The Young’uns, is bringing their unique folk sound to the Sage, Gateshead on Friday 27th October as part of their extensive UK tour.
The local trio consists of Sean Cooney, David Eagle and Michael Hughes. They first formed as a band over a decade ago when they accidentally stumbled across Stockton Folk Club and were the youngest people in the club, being hailed The Young’uns.
They burst onto the music scene way back in 2012 with their debut album, ‘When Our Grandfathers Said No’, and since then the band has gone from strength to strength releasing a further 3 albums including the latest, highly-anticipated album ‘Strangers’ which has been described as: ‘a homage to the outsider, a eulogy for the wayfarer and a hymn for the migrant’.
The Teesside trio has gained a reputation for their soulful voices, pitch-perfect harmonies, meaningful lyrics and their incredible humour. Critics say that their live shows have ‘the human touch’ as their engagement with the crowd contributes to an enviable audience rapport.
The Young’uns have proved themselves to be at the forefront of the English folk scene after performing their original sounds at countless sold-out shows in the UK, Canada, America, Australia and numerous festivals both in the UK and worldwide.
It is no wonder that they were awarded BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ‘Best Group’ for two consecutive years, managing to beat off stiff competitions from rivals such as Bellowhead, The Furrow Collection and The Gloaming.
The Young’uns head to the Sage, Gateshead on Friday 27th October as part of their ‘Strangers’ album tour.
