Folk favourites ready to stand their ground

FOLK scene favourites The Young’uns will be showing what all the fuss is about when they play Nettlebed Village Club on Monday.

A decade after first burping their way through a sea shanty as inebriated teenagers at Stockton Folk Club, The Young’uns — so called that night because they were the youngest people at the club by over 40 years — have developed their craft and are now preparing to take their music to a much wider audience than they ever imagined.

This year has seen the release of their fourth album,

Another Man’s Ground
, and a major tour to celebrate their 30th birthdays.

Inspired by the actions of a group of Stockton residents who chased a



Benefits Street
film crew from their doors, the new album celebrates working class heroes of the past and present with powerful and poignant tales of struggle, poverty and peace.

The Teesside trio — Sean Cooney, David Eagle and Michael Hughes — have also picked up a number of awards this year, being named best group at both the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and the Fatea Magazine Awards, and best live act at the Spiral Earth Awards.

Tickets for Monday’s concert are £13 in advance or £14 on the door. Doors open at 8pm. For more information or to book, call 01628 636620 or visit www.nettlebedfolkclub.co.uk
