Limited Edition Red Vinyl.
With heart-on-the-sleeve storytelling, beautiful lyrics, warm harmonies and relentless repartee, The Young'uns - Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle - sing life-affirming folk songs for today. The group and their work are born from empathy, crafted with care, fired by hope, and shared with joy.
The Young'uns' new album 'Tiny Notes' takes its name from messages tied to the railings of a bridge in Sunderland, 'Tiny Notes' is a collection of songs that find hope and humanity in grief and despair. From London Bridge to Lockerbie, from Derry to Aleppo, with warm harmony and beautifully crafted lyrics, these are folk songs for our times.
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 thirty-something friends from Stockton and Hartlepool have never lost the joy of that first night of singing together. Whether performing at Glastonbury Festival, writing a song about pigs with a group of school children, or presenting a programme on Radio 4, they are just the same.
"Hugely captivating-performing with great verve and humour- a brilliant folk act" Stuart Maconie, BBC 6 Music
"Glorious... celebrating the uncelebrated with warmth, vigour and passion" Mojo
