Manchester Folk Festival Presents: Forever Young ‘Uns: An hour with The Young ‘Uns

The Young’uns have cemented their reputation at the forefront of the English folk scene in the last few years. Having taken their uplifting voices, powerful songs, spine tingling harmonies and raucous humour to audiences across the UK and around the world, they won the title of ‘Best Group’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award in 2015 and 2016.

The Teesside trio return in 2017 with an extensive October UK tour and an eagerly anticipated new album of folk songs for our times – a homage to the outsider, a eulogy for the wayfarer and a hymn for the migrant.

Forever Young ‘Uns offers a unique opportunity to catch the Young Uns in the middle of their national tour in an intimate setting.

“The harmonies are glorious, the wit is waspish. The songs are powerful, the banter is relentless” ***** The Guardian

You can also see The Young ‘Uns live at 20:00 on Fri 20 Oct. Book tickets here.

This event is part of Manchester Folk Festival – a celebration of English folk in all its forms, from indie to traditional, familiar names alongside exciting new voices. From 19-22 October in and around HOME, the whole festival takes place in one area of Manchester over one weekend. The Festival presents an incredible music line-up, as well as craft workshops, film, a proper pub singaround, artists in conversation and a relaxed Festival Hub where you can watch the world go by. Friendly, inclusive and full of opportunities for discovery, it will have the spirit of a festival in a field, in the heart of the city.
