ASSIST Sheffield

Challenging asylum destitution

The Young'uns 'Three for All' tour came to Sheffield...and ASSIST were there

Sunday, April 17, 2016 – 14:00, The Greystones, Greystones Road, Sheffield, S11 7BS

Multi-award winning trio The Young’uns brought their “Glorious harmonies, waspish wit, powerful songs and relentless banter” (***** The Guardian) to the Greystones on 17th April as part of their THREE FOR ALL tour.

Being all-round good chaps, they decided to try to live up to the THREE FOR ALL name by doing something for FREE in each town they visit, supporting the work of community groups and causes. We were pleased that the cause they supported in Sheffield was ASSIST.

Voted ‘Best Group’ at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, The Young’uns have fast become one of the foremost groups on the UK folk scene. Beguiling audiences around the world, they seamlessly switch from beautiful ballads to brilliant banter, from profoundly poignant songs to infectiously irreverent humour. This, combined with their passion for storytelling and commitment to maintaining the tradition of social commentary, has led to five star reviews, live sessions on BBC Radio 2, 3 and documentaries on Radio 4 as well as countless sell out shows and main stage festival appearances throughout the UK and abroad.

The Young’uns are current holders of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards coveted “Best Group” title, and have been nominated for the same award again this year.

A big thank you to Sean, David and Michael for choosing to support ASSIST. Thanks also to Irish Mythen, their wonderful support act.

We had a cracking afternoon and I think our raffle went down well!
