The Rogue Folk Club presents The Young’uns

Mel Lehan Hall at St. James - 3214 West 10th Avenue24 Oct '19 @ 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM
  • The Rogue Folk Club presents The Young’uns

Teesside's triumphant trio The Young'uns, current holders of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards coveted "Best Group" title, have proved themselves a unique proposition - writing and performing a cappella or subtly accompanied songs that tell it how it is alongside traditional songs from their native North- East and further afield - songs of conscience, songs of warmth and wit, songs to provoke, songs to inspire.

Renowned for their pitch perfect harmonies and rapid fire humour, their live show undeniably has the human touch. Always engaging, frequently heart- warming, they have built an enviable audience rapport. They are an act that truly takes the cliché out of the "make you laugh, make you cry" tag.

Just two years after giving up their day jobs, Stockton Folk Club's star pupils have had a milestone year with the release of their third studio album Another Man's Ground, an appearance at America's Folk Alliance, collectively celebrating their 30th birthdays and racking up accolades including Best Group in the FATEA Awards, Best Live Act in the Spiral Earth Awards and listed as one of MOJO's "Best Albums" in 2015.

A decade of performance around the country, national radio sessions, more than 40 festival appearances (Cambridge to Glastonbury) and increasingly acclaimed album releases has delivered a gregarious, sharply honed, pull no punches act that clinched the Best Group trophy at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in Cardiff - a hugely popular result that saw them beating off opposition including the mighty Bellowhead.

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. They are a superb live act who should not be missed!
