The Young’uns: The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff – Perth Festival of Arts @ Perth Theatre
May 23 @ 8:00 pm
The Young’uns: The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff - Perth Festival of Arts @ Perth Theatre

Three time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners The Young’uns present a new and unique piece of modern folk theatre. The Ballad of Johnny Longstaff is the story of one man’s adventure from begging on the streets in the north of England to fighting fascism in the Spanish Civil War, taking in the Hunger Marches and the Battle of Cable Street. It’s a timely, touching and often hilarious musical adventure following the footsteps of one working-class hero who witnessed some of the momentous events of the 1930s.

With their trademark harmony, honesty and humour, the Teeside trio bring together 16 specially-composed songs, spoken word, striking imagery and the real recorded voice of Johnny himself to tell a remarkable human story, oozing with modern relevance.

“The harmonies are glorious, the wit is waspish. The songs are powerful, the banter is relentless and the audience is happy. What’s not to like?” ★★★★★ The Guardian
