NEW SINGLE: THE YOUNG 'UNS - TINY NOTES
HAPPY NEW YEAR! We hope you’ve all had a good start to 2023. We are delighted to share with you the new single Tiny Notes, the title track from the upcoming release from folk super trio The Young ‘Uns!
In 2018 Paige Hunter began tying handwritten messages onto the railings of the Wearmouth Bridge in Sunderland, urging people not to take their own lives. Her notes have been responsible for saving the lives of at least 30 people and have inspired others to leave similar messages on bridges around the world.
Huge thanks to everyone who’s pre-ordered the new album. Follow the link above to order your copy, released on 03.03.23 on CD, LP, Limited Edition Red LP and digital. You can also purchase limited edition super fan bundles and a special episode of Tiny Notes YTV.
‘Poignant and exquisite’ Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
You may have also caught The Young ‘Uns this week on BBC Radio 2 as part of the 21st Century Folk project. Inspired by the legendary BBC Radio Ballads, the lives of 5 extraordinary people from the North East of England have been turned into song. Sean's job was to write a song for 75 year old Middlesbrough GP (and football fanatic) Dr Ifti Lone who has been a doctor on Teesside for 50 years (and counting). The 5 twenty minute episodes are all available to listen to on BBC Sounds now.
Tune in to the Jeremy Vine show today (Wednesday 11th January) at 1.30pm and the Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe at 9pm to hear all about it! All 5 episodes of 21st Century Folk will be broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on Sunday 15th January from 8pm.
NEW SINGLE: SALT HOUSE - THE DIPPER
Our second single of the week is out this Friday and taken from the brand new record ‘Riverwoods’ from Scottish trio Salt House, due for release on Hudson Records on 10.03.23
The first instrumental single from Riverwoods celebrates the dipper - a characterful bird synonymous with our upland rivers. In many cultures the dipper is a symbol of renewal and hope.
This latest studio album ‘Riverwoods' is a musical response to the feature-length documentary of the same name made by rewilding charity ‘SCOTLAND: The Big Picture’, and recently featured on Channel 5. A collection of both songs and instrumentals inspired by the journey of the atlantic salmon and the much-needed biodiversity along our river systems, pre-order ‘Riverwoods’ today on CD, DL, limited edition Sky Blue LP and a handmade super limited edition run of 12 signed Riverwoods lyric prints.
