Album from twice winner of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Group accolade. A collection of folk songs for our times a homage to the outsider, a eulogy for the wayfarer and a hymn for the migrant. The Younguns have proved themselves a unique proposition writing and performing a cappella or subtly accompanied songs that tell it how it is alongside traditional songs from their native North-East and further afield songs of conscience, songs of warmth and wit, songs to provoke, songs to inspire.
Strangers interweaves inspirational stories from the past with tales from todays world to create a timely, thought provoking and ultimately uplifting piece in which Syrian refugees, gay rights campaigners, aid workers and have-a go heroes rub shoulders with First World War soldiers, Caribbean immigrants and Victorian mavericks. With Strangers The Younguns sort to create a body of work that would stand alone in terms of content and producti on values rather than, being a simple audio adjunct to their acclaimed live shows. The early reviews confirm that theyve achieved their objective.
