Voted ‘Best Group’ at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and nominated again this year, The Young’uns have fast become one of the foremost groups on the UK folk scene. Beguiling audiences around the world, they seamlessly switch from beautiful ballads to brilliant banter, from profoundly poignant songs to infectiously irreverent humour. This, combined with their passion for storytelling and commitment to maintaining the tradition of social commentary, has led to five star reviews, live sessions on BBC Radio 2, 3 and documentaries on Radio 4 as well as countless sell out shows and main stage festival appearances throughout the UK and abroad.
2016 sees them embark on their biggest tour to date in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and more. This multi-award winning trio are a superb live act and they are not to be missed.
