Just as election season is heating up in America, British folk trio The Younguns are bringing their brand of political and social commentary to U.S. venues for the first time. Named Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards two years in a row (2015 and 2016), they are igniting American audiences with their trademark harmonies, honesty and humor, commencing with their recent debut appearance at the Philadelphia Folk Festival.    

The Younguns are best known for their largely-unaccompanied story songs that are at once poignant and humorous, some of them ripped straight from news headlines.  Their 2018 album STRANGERS, described as a protest album that is pointed and forceful by the popular folk blog brightyoungfolk.com, was voted Best Album by listeners at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and was widely acknowledged by critics as an antidote to the toxic divisiveness of Brexit and the rise of fear and racial tension in Britain.  

The Younguns most recent album release is a unique piece of modern folk theatre entitled THE BALLAD OF JOHNNY LONGSTAFF, a real-life folk hero from their northeast England hometown of Stockton on Tees, who went from begging on the streets to fighting against fascism in the Spanish Civil War.  Louderthanwar.com called it:  Enthralling, moving and hilarioussimply the best thing theyve done.  

The Younguns - Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle - are part of the rebirth of topical music and have been said to explore British values using songs and stories.  In addition to touring, they have hosted harmony and singing workshops at hundreds of festivals around the world.   Influential UK music magazine Mojo has said of them:  Glorious.celebrating the uncelebrated with warmth, vigor and passion while The Guardian has written: The harmonies are glorious, the wit is waspish. The songs are powerful, the banter is relentless and the audience is happy. Whats not to like?  

Now its Americas turn to weigh in.
