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 Young’uns 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 today’s 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 Young’uns 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 they’ve achieved their objective.
