According to the Internet source given below, The Young 'Uns
comprising Sean Cooney, David Eagle and Michael Hughes are three very fine singers who hale from Hartlepool, England. That they perform with passion and gusto can be confirmed by myself when thoroughly enjoying their performance at Festival Maritim in August, 2011
. They have also been seen at festivals in Warwick, Shrewsbury, Sidmouth, Priddy, Shepley, Whitby, Saltburn, Bie Daip (Holland), Gate to Southwell, Balerno (Edinburgh) and Sedgefield, as well as many other major venues and folk clubs throughout the UK.
On a personal note I particularly admired Sean Cooney's deadpan delivery when introducing themselves to the predominantly German audience. In saying that the group came from Hartlepool, he deliberately provoked titters. When the tittering had died down, he then said that Hartlepool was not a joke provoking merriment and outright laughter.
Great stuff - well done lads!!
