This week, Elly Lucas from Gibb and Lucas is under the spotlight in Folk in Focus as we unearth a startling revelation. Sam Pirt from the Hut People is back with the penultimate Juicer Minute ahead of David’s detox, plus we speak to him about meditation. We talk with Theatre Maker Daniel Bye who we became acquainted with through our song the Battle of Stockton which forms a part of his recent project, the Story Hunt. We’ll hear about the story Hunt project as well as his other productions. And Michael’s sexual orientation comes under scrutiny once more. Music comes from Polish shanty quintet Brasy along with some exciting Brasy related news, and there’s a collaboration with the Young’uns and Marius from Brasy recorded at Northwich Folk Club last weekend.
As the Young’uns Podcast increases in popularity among folk music fans, we realise the importance of not only entertaining, but also educating and informing. Our new item, Folk in Focus, brings you the latest folk news, the all important stories that Mark Radcliff, Mike Harding and folk magazines just aren’t covering. Yes, The Young’uns Podcast is now your go-to home for the latest folk music news! This week, we’ve got stories about Barbara Dickson, Kit Bailey and Bellowhead’s Sam Sweeney.
Also this week, the second Juicer Minute with Sam Pirt from the Hut People. We’ve got more surreal Young’uns dreams, this time featuring Paul Gascoigne and Mike Harding, and wrestling Young’uns. Mike Wilson talks about the Wilsons’ recent collaboration with Sting and their performance at the BBC Proms. There’s music and talking bits from the Young’uns and the Wilsons, collaborating as part of the Festival of the North East, and Sean Cooney introduces us to a song about the Suffragette movement written and performed by primary school children in Manchester.

This week is one half of a worm. That won’t make any sense unless you listen. Haha, now you’ll have to listen to find out, I’ve hooked you – just like a worm in fact. We feature two YOUNG’UNS and Wilsons collaborations (Young Banker and country life). We speak once again to John Hilsen, creator of the sport John Ball, as we reveal the Young’uns John Ball recruitment anthem. Sam Pirt from the Hut People introduces us to his Purple Pulse juice in the first Juicer minute. A couple of weeks ago it was Sean Cooney’s sexual orientation that was in question, this week its Michael Hughes under the spotlight. Plus there are clips from a Meet the Young’uns event at this year’s Bristol Folk festival.
