This is folk in Cuban heels" - Eamon CarrYou'll be delighted to know that there is nothing typical about The Young Folk. Yes, the band members (Anthony Furey, vocals/guitar, Tony McLoughlin, bass/mandolin, Paul Butler, piano/vocals, and Karl Hand, drums/percussion) are of a certain youthful age, and yes, the songs they create are variants/ enhancements on what could be tethered under the term 'folk', but if you're looking for very obvious reference points (or worse, clichs) then you'd best search elsewhere.In 2012, the band played Irish summer events such as Castlepalooza, Sea Sessions, Sligo Live and Valentia Isle Festival, and then performed shows in parts of Scandinavia.This year alone, The Young Folk have gigged in New York (for Culture Ireland), toured Italy and Ireland (for the launch of their debut album, The Little Battle), and in the UK (the prestigious) Cambridge Folk Festival, where they shared a stage with The Waterboys and The Staves) and then finishing off their summer on a high with a slot at Electric Picnic playing to a packed out Little Big Tent.With several records under the belt - including 2011's The Young Folk EP and this year's debut album, The Little Battle - Anthony, Tony,Paul and Karl are presently writing new material for release in the first half of 2014.The Young Folk's debut album, The Little Battle, is available for sale on ITunes, Amazon, Googleplay and Spotify.Dubliner Magazine labelled them as "a unique prospect" "one of the most promising young Irish bands of recent years" not because of their impressive resume, but because of the raw energy and passion they bring to the stage..Hotpress Magazine descibe them as "serious challengers for the area populated by the likes of Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons & The Low Anthem...State Magazine This Dublin four-piece has quite the arsenal of great tunes, the record boasts the band's expanded range. Go see them live if you can, but if not, then this album is a great substitute2 U I Bestow ONLINE BLOG The Dublin based four piece band have put together an album that'll enchant, charm, inspire as well as being an album that's full of amazing songs.'WWW.THEYOUNGFOLK.COM8.00 + 0.80 Booking fee = 8.8018 tickets available18 and over
