AN award-winning folk trio are bringing a specially crafted Christmas show to Kendal this December.

‘We Three Sings’ sees BBC Folk Award winners The Young’uns perform at Kendal Parish Church on December 9

The popular Teesside trio don their festive jumpers for a lighthearted romp through Christmas past, from carols rooted deep in the soil of Britain’s ancient wassail traditions to original songs of seasonal cheer and heartbreak.

Audience members will get the chance to join the three wise men of folk as they reflect upon and celebrate Christmas in both word and song, “bringing seasonal joy and warmth to young and old alike.”

The Young’uns have cemented their reputation at the forefront of the UK 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 (including a couple of times in Kendal), they won the coveted titles of ‘Best Group’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award in 2015 and 2016.

Michael Hughes from the band said “We are delighted to be heading back to Kendal this Christmas after such a great night at the wonderful Brewery Arts Centre last year. The audiences are delightful and the setting is stunning. Roll on Christmas!”

The Young’uns are made up of Sean Cooney, David Eagle and Michael Hughes, who met as teenagers and encountered folk music as underage drinkers in a local pub.

They enjoyed the music and returned to the Stockton Folk Club, where, as the band report: “One day someone said ‘let’s hear a song from the young’uns’ and we sang this one verse we knew from a sea shanty”, explaining the band’s name.

The Young’uns recorded their latest album ‘Strangers’ this year.This eagerly-anticipated album is a collection of folk songs for modern times – “an homage to the outsider, a eulogy for the wayfarer and a hymn for the migrant.”

Prior to ‘Strangers’ the group recorded three albums. Their debut, ‘When Our Grandfathers Said No’, came out in 2012. It was followed by 2014’s ‘Never Forget’.

Their thirds album, ‘Another Man’s Ground’, was released two years ago.

The band have toured all over the world, and prior to touring their Christmas show, they travelled around Canada in support of the latest album.

The band have also put together a book, ‘Bound Together’, which is due for release in 2018.
