Live From Folk East 2018 with Edgelarks, Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne, and Luke Daniels
We return to Suffolk’s Folk East Festival for another live podcast. Join us in a packed marquee as we host an hour of music, chat, games and a mix of spontaneous and semi-planned features with Philip Henry and Hannah Martin (AKA Edgelarks), Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne and Luke Daniels. We get a lesson in beat boxing, there’s a music quiz, we play a game of kerplunk, and Herbal Tea Of The Week is back but with an extreme sports twist. Plus we introduce you to the newest member of The Young’uns family.
Dan Walsh Live From The Young’uns Suffolk Weekend 2018
Top UK banjo player Dan Walsh live from 2018’s Young’uns weekend in Suffolk. Music, chat and spontaneously generated “features.” David gets a banjo lesson, Dan creates an improvised song and tells stories of surreal gig experiences, plus there’s a brief appearance from Shaggy.
Christmas 2018
To bastardise Band Aid: the greatest gift you’ll get this year’s online. It’s the Christmas 2018 Young’uns Podcast, festooned with festive fun from our 2016 We Three Sings Christmas tour. Play along with The Young’uns Christmas quiz, trying to guess the film, song or sitcom from our attempted re-enactments. There’s lots of music from The Young’uns as well as from our Canadian friend Allison Lupton. There’s dancing elf/reindeer hybrids, traditional English Carol based observational comedy, spurious conjecture about birds, a wealth of wassailing, and a musical interpretation of a Grimms’ fairy tale. Also, a special thanks from us to the wonderful talents of Matthew Crampton. Merry Christmas from The Young’uns. The three of us will of course be spending Christmas together. This year it’s David’s turn to stuff the turkey, and Michael’s turn to be the turkey. Fear not, Youtube videos to follow soon. Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
World Book Day Special
Given that it’s World Book Day, and we happen to have written a book, this seems like the perfect excuse to be mercenary and remind you that you can part with your money in exchange for a selection of stories all about The Young’uns. The book features tales of our various adventures, and insights into the songs we sing. In this brief instalment of The Young’uns Podcast, David reads a story that was meant to be in the book, but which we forgot to include, and only realised after it had gone to print. They say manners cost nothing, but Michael Hughes discovers that this is not always the case. Download or stream the podcast to learn more.
Rex Factor, Live From The Pirate Castle in London
We receive a lot of feedback on The Young’uns Podcast, and one comment that keeps coming around time and time again is: “this folk music stuff is all very well and good, but, when are you going to talk about Saxon monarch Edgar the Peaceable?” Well friends, that time has finally come, as The Young’uns Podcast unites with another podcast: Rex Factor, where British monarchs throughout history battle for supremacy. Last year the Rex Factor won the attentions of the Guardian, and in a desperate and cynical bid to get The Young’uns Podcast noticed, we decided to invite the Rex Factor’s hosts, our good friends Graham and Ali, on to our podcast. Recorded in front of an audience last year at the Pirate Castle in London, we discuss the conundrum that is Richard III; the musical abilities of Henry VIII, play a monarchy based round of the Birthday Game, which gets rather heated; and author and voice of The Transports, Matthew Crampton, sings of the spectral exploits of Anne Boleyn.
Bob Sleigh Fox
In this edition of The Young’uns Podcast, presented to you from a sleigh in freezing Western Canada, we feature music, mirth and meanderings with Bob Fox, recorded at our 2016 Singing Weekend in Beverley. Bob divulges stories about his time working on the National Theatre production of War Horse, talking about various onstage and offstage mishaps. He also opens up about his love affair with The Young’uns’ very own Michael Hughes. And we play a backwards game of Trivial Pursuit.
The Erotic Dance Of The Rolling Pin
This week’s guests are Quicksilver, comprising Grant Baynham, a regular contributor on BBC One’s That’s Life with Esther Rantzen in the 80s, and Hilary Spencer from the vocal harmony trio Artisan. As well as playing live for us, They share anecdotes of post-gig accommodation traumas, Grant talks about writing comedy songs for radio and his time on the TV with Esther Rantzen, and there’s a particularly patriotic Herbal Tea of The Week. There’s eccentric, flourishing guitar picking, soring vocals, hilarious wordplay, unsavoury stories, and possibly also unsavoury tea; but you’ll have to listen to find out whether that’s true.
Live in Suffolk with Gilmore & Roberts
This week’s guests are BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominated duo Gilmore & Roberts.Katriona Gilmore introduces us to her talking micropig. Herbal tea Of The Week makes a return. We rant about satnavs and kettles. And we discuss odd gig experiences.
The Young’uns in Australia
This week’s Young’uns podcast features highlights from our 2016 Australian tour. We receive some rather unusual heckles. We nearly become major Australian reality TV stars. We are thrown into panic due to a case of mistaken identity. We’ve an Australian themed game for you to try your hand at. Find out what caused one female audience member to lodge a complaint with a festival because of our “sexist” behaviour. And what the heck did Sean do to a Cockatoo?
Live From Folk East 2017 with Dan Walsh, Will Pound, Eddy Jay and Pete Flood
The Young’uns Podcast returns to the Folk East festival in Suffolk. There’s music, chat and games with Dan Walsh, Will Pound, Eddy Jay. Pete Flood is best known for his percussion skills, being the drummer in Bellowhead, but he’s also a keen botanist, which makes him the perfect guest for our inaccurately named semi-regular feature Herbal Tea Of The Week. And there’s a live pottery demonstration.
The Antiques Folk Show With Nancy Kerr, James Fagan, Richard & Jess Arrowsmith (AKA Melrose Quartet)
The Young’uns Podcast returns to Sheffield, to the Antiques shop Rileys & Co, for music, conversation and games with Sheffield’s Melrose Quartet. There’s another epic Space Attack battle, play along with our new game, Song charades, we discuss dreams, and there’s an exciting new biscuit based feature.

This week’s Young’uns Podcastt features our 2016 adventures in Canada. Take a soak with us in a hot tub; come with us as we embark on a perilous boat ride. Kiss a dog, or kiss lots of dogs, so long as you’ve got the cash to splash. We have fun with Pokémon and geese. It’s the return of the Birthday Game. And we meet Don, the drummer in the ridiculously named Canadian band, The Young’uns. So roll up, roll up, step right this way, although mind that pool of blood.
Live from Sheffield with Roy Bailey and Neil McSweeney
The wait is finally at an end. The Young’uns podcast is back for another series. Over the course of the next few weeks we’ll take you with us to Canada, Belgium, Australia, and all around the UK. We’ll be playing you some of the more interesting bits that happened between the songs at our gigs. We’ll be chatting with and hearing music from lots of our folky friends . And we’ve got some new exciting features, as well as the return of some of the tried and tested classics. This week we’re in Sheffield, in front of a live audience, with special Sheffield guests Roy Bailey and Neil McSweeney. Now 82, Roy looks back at his sixty years of singing folk songs, and shares stories about his friendship and collaboration with Tony Ben, and talks about his decision to hand back his MBE. Sheffield singer songwriter Neil McSweeney takes us to a land of cocaine and orgiastic revelry. As well as singing and chatting, Roy and Neil battle for glory in an epic game of Space Attack. All that and a lot more will grace your ears when you stream or download this instalment of The Young’uns Podcast. Thanks also to Paul Foster from Colchester for helping with this week’s Young’uns Podcast introductory jingle.

Live From Folk East Festival, With John Spiers, O’hooley & Tidow, and Sam Kelly
The Young’uns Podcast is back! Our first podcast of 2016 comes live from the Folk East Festival in Suffolk, where we are joined by an enthusiastic audience, guests John Spiers, O’hooley & Tidow, and Sam Kelly. As well as songs and tunes, we play a game of Jenga, have a competition to see who can do the best impression of the characters from the children’s TV show Rainbow, play a geordie drinking game, and discuss all manner of miscellaneous claptrap. And even more exciting than all of that … It’s the return of Herbal Tea Of The week!!!
End Of Year Clearance Sale
It’s the last Young’uns Podcast of the year, and the last in the current series until April 2016. So, in this podcast we are clearing out all our old stock, I.E. the remaining gig clips that are still lurking on the computer that have yet to be played, It’s very much the bargain basement equivalent of a podcast, but in a good way, hopefully. David dons his dog collar to become the Reverend Eagle in order to convey a spiritual message for the new year. Plus, there’s some faeces based banter, conspiracy theories, and we discuss South American cuisine.
Christmas 2015
Hark, hark, good news, the Christmas Young’uns Podcast is here! Lots of music and clips from our Christmas tour, a Christmas quiz in which we ask you to identify the TV sitcom from the Young’uns’ musical clues. And we invade a train with 300 of our friends to sing Christmas songs, led by the folk group Scuppered.
My Step son was almost run over by Princess Diana, And Other Stories
This Young’uns Podcast episode is dedicated to Jake, a fourteen-year-old boy who wrote us a lovely long letter about how wonderful we are; he’s clearly going to go places. Today we meet the man who’s step son was nearly killed by the People’s Princess. David is accosted by yet another overly-familiar lady. The Young’uns colaborate with a dubstep MC. We get trapped inside a fridge. We meet the audience member who’s maybe just a little bit too keen to get involved with the performance. We find out how the Young’uns’ music is responsible for uniting a lovestruck teenage couple. We meet some crazy Kate Rusby fans with a penchant for nursery rhymes. And there’s lots of sneezing, sniffing and stamping, plus a few complimentary leg puns.
Strawberry Knickers
This week’s Young’uns Podcast is dedicated to the man at our gig in Honiton who rebuked us for being too much of a miserable band. David meets a child magician, Sean is lost for words, Maz O’Connor is feeling flummoxed, and Michael is just Michael. We introduce you to some revolutionary new technology. And the award for the worst venue we’ve played in 2015 is won hands-down by the Slaughtered Lamb in London. Find out why by listening to this edition of The Young’uns Podcast. And we start it all off with a cover off My Girl recorded in the pub after our BBC Radio 4 documentary earlier this summer, with Mark Radcliffe, Mark’s bandmate and radio producer Chris Lee and some other BBC folk.
Scratch And sniff
Confusion reigns in this week’s Young’uns Podcast. David is accosted by an overly-familiar lady, and accidentally gets hitched. The Unthanks feature in The Young’uns RoadShow live from Somerset, and Artisan share an anecdote about accents. The Young’uns are depicted as cyclopses in a woman’s fantasy, we are grilled by an infant tabloid journalist, David discovers the true price of fame, and a piano gets inserted into an orifice. All that, plus proof of the existence of god, in this week’s Young’uns Podcast.
No Celebrities This week, Just Greg Russell and ciaran Algar, Sorry
We head back to Bamfest in Bedale, which won The Young’uns award for the drunkest and most raucous audience of 2014, and, as you’ll hear in this week’s podcast, they haven’t at all mellowed, in fact, at one point an audience member offers to have David’s babies. Martin Carthy, Martin Simpson and John Tams feature in the dreams of Sean Cooney. Michael Hughes is held hostage near Hull. Greg Russell and ciaran Algar go head-to-head in the Birthday game. And David is high, but on what? All will be revealed in this instalment of The Young’uns Podcast.
David Punches Jeremy Kyle In The Face
Last week, Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal sat next to us on a plane to Portugal. This week our paths cross with Jeremy Kyle, who was recording his show opposite the BBC Radio 3 studio in which we were recording a live session. Also this week, Ciaran Algar joins us in a pub to discuss dreams, we get interrogated by some posh children, the birthday game is back, and we play a new game, Guess The Tune On The bassoon.
In Portugal, with Mike Harding, Lady Maisery and Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal
So far this year we’ve taken you with us to America, Canada and France, and this week we’re off to Portugal, to the Costa del Folk Festival. Hear clips from our first ever aquatic gig, as we perform in the swimming pool, with the help of Lady Maisery – without instruments of course. Hear clips from our sangria fuelled late night gig, in which Mike Harding impersonates animals and insults the Welsh. Plus, find out what happens when Manchester United’s manager Louis Van Gaal sits next to us on the plane.
Beetles, Belching, Bathroom, Billy Bragg, Ballads, Breakfast, Birthday Game, Brass, Burst Drainpipes, Bus, and Baa
We talk to a man in a pub about beetle shit, David has a confession to make about behaving inappropriately on a bus, and the Birthday Game is back, only with a twist. All that and lots more on this edition of The Young’uns Podcast.
The Young’uns in France
From Canada we headed straight to France, where we performed after fifteen hours traveling and thirty hours without sleep. This week, David attempts some french standup comedy, but gets his GCSE french a bit mixed up and inadvertently makes what might have appeared to be a pro-nazi declaration, and accidentally but frequently makes references to genitalia. All that and lots more, including music from Belgian brothers Trio Dhoore, in this week’s Young’uns Podcast from France.
