In August 2017, Teesside folk group The Young’uns embarked on a journey to meet the people who inspired the songs on their forthcoming album, Strangers. In the first video in this series, Michael, Sean and David from The Young ‘uns meet Matthew Ogston, the courageous anti-homophobia campaigner whose heart-wrenching story inspired their song Be The Man. They met at Hampstead Cemetery, where there is a memorial bench for his fiancé, Naz.
The song is due to be played on BBC Radio 2’s Good Morning Sunday (Clare Balding) this weekend and the guys will be live in session on BBC Radio 2 Mark Radcliffe Folk Show 2 days before album release (Sept 27)
The Young’uns embark on a big UK tour in October 2017. Visit www.theyounguns.co.uk for full details.
