BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners The Young’uns’ are bringing their acclaimed Christmas show to All Saints Church in Pocklington on Saturday 16th December.
The band’s live shows are renowned roller coaster rides. With heart-on-the-sleeve storytelling, beautiful lyrics, warm harmonies and relentless repartee, Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle (the award-winning stand-up comedian) write and sing folk songs for today.Born from empathy, crafted with care, fired by hope, and shared with joy. Nearly twenty years after accidentally stumbling into the alien world of their local folk club as drunken teenagers, (and gaining their cureless name in the process) these three thirtysomething friends from Stockton and Hartlepool have never lost the joy of that first night of singing together. Whether performing at Glastonbury Festival, writing a song about pigs with a group of school children, or presenting a programme on Radio 4, Sean, Michael and David are just the same.
The event is being organised by James Duffy of Hurricane Promotions, formerly of Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC), and will be the first in what is hoped to be a regular collaboration with All Saints Church with more music events planned for 2024.
Jake Belder, All Saints Vicar commented “We are always delighted to see the church used for community events. Churches historically have been the social hubs of their communities, bringing people together for fellowship, entertainment, and the sharing of ideas and opinions. This concert wraps those three things up in one great package.”
