OK, Greg Stephens just told me about these lads, in the 'Young Folk' thread....and...my ears have gone UP!    You know, like they did when I first heard Seth Lakeman..

Just WOW!

Soooo....here they are, richly deserving a thread of their very own, because these lads are going to filling marquees all over the country, you just watch 'em.

The Young Un's - Myspace - and every song on there is excellent!


WHAT voices!   :0)

I've just asked them over to my page, and I'm about to put their music on to play on there now...FANTASTIC!

Thanks, Greg. x

In my opinion, the Young Un's have good folk voices - Seth Lakeman has a good pop voice, with which he sings self-penned, local, traditional stories.

Ok, the young'uns , Sean, Michael and David , great voices, great company and I like to think we are friends although the last time I was with them they said "spot the middle class folk singer", I think it was humour. They are really, really good and not only that what you see and hear is what you get, totally unpretentious gems, good to know that the future is in their hands. So, to any folk club hirers they will blow you all away with their refreshing youthful interpretation of the traditional genre which draws so heavily on the Wilson/Waterson that it will not be unrecognisable but has a vim and vigour that reflects their youth, am I jealoous? Well maybe to have my time again and sing with these three very talented lads

I look forward to performing with them again.
We were paired up for sets at Scarborough Seafest because I was w/o my band and they were w/o their frontman Sean. This will not be completely obvious for those of you with fliers, because Richard Grainger was in the grips of some sort of capricious joke and listed them (even introduced them to me) as "Pirate John". They were so polite that they didn't tell me of his prank until I had already introduced them as that 2 or 3 times (trying to plug the local boys). This frustration led to the name of the first CD "To Hell With Pirate John".

I'm glad to have a part in that now . ;)
They were great fun and quite supportive. I appreciated Mike's head full of music student theory and know how, and David's Rustic humor and voice. As an American, I didn't know that anyone in England really had a voice like his , let alone anyone under 45!

I must write and bug them and not just prattle on here, but I saw folks talking, and I thought I had 2 cents to lend. . .

The sound Young'uns make, as I have said on another thread... brings on an involuntary shudder (one of those cozy feelings)... they are such talented lads, have incredible harmonies and must not be missed.
Check out their gig list and get there. You will not be disappointed.

Hope to get to join harmonies at Saddleworth!!

They went down a treat on their 2nd visit to South Shields last night.

Thought they were good last year but last night they just excelled.

Not only a great night of singing but great crack, great voices and their hearts are in the tradition.

They finished the first half with a medley of Shanties dedicated to Johnny Collins. A fitting tribute to Johnny who gave us a rousing gig exactly 1 year ago to the night.

Top Job lads !

Yeah they are known by a lot of people and people have been talking about them but why are they not headlining more festivals?? They have the all round package - better entertainment and more enjoyable than some of the so called 'bigger' groups. And why are they not being played on Mike Harding's BBC show?


Post - Top - Home - Printer Friendly - Translate

Subject: RE: The Young Un's

Date: 14 Jul 09 - 02:18 PM

Because they haven't 1/ employed a plugger 2/ They have self released their CDs (rather than on a record label 3/ They don't have an agent......

i.e They haven't joined the industry in the same way that most artists that get played on Mike Harding and get booked as festival headliners have.

Makes you think doesn't it?

Paul, I agree 100%.

The question is though can you make it BIG without playing the industry games and having someone's money behind you?

In the cottage industry that most of us are part of it's hard to break through.

I have booked them twice at KFFC and I will be doing so again. Not that this will make that much difference to their careers!

Can someone put a thread about them on the BBC for me, please. I'd do it, but there's no point, as it'll be removed. But if you could all spread the word over there, get those who support them in here to go over to the BBC Folk & Acoustic Board...and on to fRoots as well, er...I can't post there either.

If you want these guys to 'break through', then all of YOU have to be their agents, and get talking about them all over the internet, send their Myspace page around....

And could someone please get them to put more information about themselves on their Myspace page. That page doesn't tell people enough about them, and it's their Shop Window to the World, far more so than their main site will ever be. The World uses Myspace and Youtube to send music around the place.

I'm listening to their Podcast at the moment, which is on their Myspace page. (see link to that in my first post)

Honestly, these lads should be out there, beyond the folk world too, as someone's said above, because they have immense talent.

If they want to "go further" it would help them if they got a better name. Instant confusion with old TV sitcom featuring Ade Edmondson etc. apart from anything else like not being very inspiring and badly punctuated. Mind you, I thought the Beatles was a stupid name - still do - so what do I know?!
