Subject: Tech: The Young'uns on Graeme Miles - R4 Doc
From: GUEST,Lancsfolkie

Just heard on Facebook that The Young'uns are doing a programme on Radio 4 about Graeme Miles which will be broadcast tomorrow at 4pm. This is what it says on the write up:

The Young'uns on Graeme Miles: My Muse, Series 2

"The terraced streets were my Grand Canyons, the shipyard cranes my redwood trees, those steelwork tips were my mountain ranges and the brickyard ponds were my seven seas".

These are the words of the songwriter Graeme Miles that inspired Sean Cooney, David Eagle and Michael Hughes of the Teesside folk group The Young'uns - Radio 2's Folk Band of the Year Award winners in 2015 & 2016. Stumbling across a folk club at the age of 17, school friends Sean, David & Michael first heard the songs of Graeme Miles - songs about their local area - songs that resonated. They realised that there was beauty to be found in a place they had been brought up to believe was "deprived" and "unromantic", and that Graeme's songs instilled a sense of pride.

For years now the band have been singing Graeme's songs, and, in this programme, they find out more about the man and his work. Featuring interviews with Graeme's widow Annie, and discussion and performances from esteemed musicians from the folk world, including the critically-acclaimed band The Unthanks, this programme highlights some of Graeme's finest songs. From an emotive performance of 'Waiting For The Ferry' on the banks of the River Tees, to a stirring rendition of 'Ring of Iron' accompanied by the legendary Billingham group The Wilson Family, The Young'uns discover more about their muse, and present the programme in their unique and humorous way.

Oooh, I look forward to listening to that!

I still have my 1983 LP of The Wilson's "Horumarye", devoted to Graeme Miles' songs!
(and as with many other folks, "The Shores of Old Blighty" is a firm favourite - my late lamented Beloved and I, loved to sing it together, here Down Under......)

Cheers!

My Eldorado

What a verse
