Details

Twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners, the Young'uns present a timely tale of a boy who walked out of poverty, a teenager who stood up to racism, a soldier who fought facism and an old man who inspired a generation.

From the shadow of the Teeside shipyards, to the banks of the Thames, from Cable Street to the Spanish Civil War, Johnny Longstaff bore witness to some of the most defining moments of the early 20th century.

Before he died, he recorded his story in words which were harrowing, hilarious, poignant, proud and ultimately uplifting. With their trademark harmony and humour, the Teeside trio present an urgent suite of songs interwoven with Johnny's own voice and rare images to tell an amazing story.
