Haunting harmonies, toe-tapping rhythm and twisted folk from rising stars. “Energetic, original … excellent stage presence and varied, enchanting material … extremely deserving winners of the Bath Folk Festival New Shoots Competition 2016.” - Bath Folk Festival

Young Water’s (previously Snufkin) twisted neo-folk is a tapestry of emotionally powerful vocals, stirring harmonies, lyrical violin solos and finely mastered acoustic guitar. Their exhilarating rhythms and intricate, weaving melodies, coupled with a repertoire that combines startling original material with traditional folk songs, makes for a captivating stage presence. This young band are set to make a big impact in 2017.

They burst onto the London / Bristol folk scene in 2015 and have been making a name for themselves with their live album, ‘Live from The Fayre’ (recorded live at Rollright Fayre). Following a host of festival appearances in 2016 (including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness, Boomtown and Smugglers) they have built a strong following. They rounded off the summer by winning Bath Folk Festival’s New Shoots competition, earning themselves a recording session at Peter Gabriel’s legendary Real World Studios and a prestigious headline slot at the 2017 Bath Folk Festival.

Young Waters is a five-piece band led by Theo Passingham (vocals and guitar) with Kerry Ann Jangle (vocals and percussion), Liam O’Connell (double bass and vocals), Calum Smith (violin) and Rowen Elliot (viola).
