Stunning… truly a transport of delight

David Eagle

The Young'uns

David is one third of Teesside trio The Young’uns.

The Young’uns have always had the human touch. In the space of little more than a decade - and just three years after giving up their day jobs - they have become one of UK folk music’s hottest properties and best-loved acts.

Stockton Folk Club’s star graduates clinched the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ‘Best Group’ title two years running (2015 and 2016) and last year saw them spreading the net, taking their unique act and instant audience rapport to Canada, America and Australia.

With their strong songs, spellbinding harmonies and rapid fire humour, they have achieved one of the trickiest balancing acts – an ability to truly ‘make them laugh and make them cry’, while cutting straight to the heart of some of our most topical issues. 

“Incredibly moving - you guys are life enhancers” - Sean Rafferty, BBC Radio 3

“The harmonies are glorious, the wit is waspish. The songs are powerful, the banter is relentless and the audience is happy. What’s not to like" - ★★★★★ Colin Irwin, The Guardian 

“In Cooney, The Young’uns clearly have a songwriter of considerable talent” - ★★★★ Songlines

“Magnificent - destined to become hailed as national treasures before long” ★★★★★ Maverick
