The Young'Uns - The Ballad Of Johnny Longstaff
BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards “Best Group” recipients in 2015 and 2016, The Young'uns have a raft of awards to go along with the adoring, international fan base they have rapidly accumulated in a few short years. Pitch-perfect, a capella harmonies, razor-sharp banter and an uncanny knack for blending traditional themes with social commentary in live shows have gained them rave live reviews.
Johnny Longstaff bore witness to some of the most defining moments of the early 20th century. Before he died, he recorded his story in words which were harrowing, hilarious, poignant, proud and ultimately uplifting. With their trademark harmony and humour the Teesside trio present an urgent suite of songs interwoven with Johnny’s own voice and rare images to tell an amazing story.
