The Young Folk TradFest 2020 Smickwicks Sessions

The Young Folk

Date: Jan 23, Jan 24, Jan 25, Jan 26

The Young Folk primarily consists of a creative triangle with Anthony Furey at its apex joined by Paul Butler and Tony McLoughlin as singer/songwriters of exceptional talent in their own right. The trio are joined by Alex Borwick for most of their live shows enabling TYF to fully flex their musical muscle. The Young Folk are signed to UK’s Pixie Pace Records  – an imprint label of the leading world and folk music label, ARC Music – through which they released their debut album worldwide, The Little Battle in 2014 which went straight into No 2 in the Dutch charts and top 10 in Irish charts.

Their commitment to writing lyrics relating to real issues concerning family, childhood memories and times of great personal value resonate with audiences immediately. The Young Folk are known for their immaculate harmonies and sing tales of times that impacted on their lives with a commitment that is hard to match and easy to fall in love with.

The Young Folk marry traditional acoustic instrumentation, perfect harmonies and contemporary production techniques resulting in a sound which has seen them compared with Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver and Crosby Stills & Nash, and are continually winning over new audiences the world over who are blown away by their fresh take on the Folk genre.
