Urban Folk Quartet
Tuesday, March 20, 2012
Joe Broughton, Paloma Trigás, Frank Moon and Tom Chapman are The Urban Folk Quartet. Four highly accomplished musicians, a dozen instruments and four voices coming together to craft a knockout show of globally–influenced, electrifying acoustic music that has been taking the European folk scene by storm.
Summer 2011 saw them embark on their biggest adventure yet – a three month rollercoaster ride of gigs across Spain, Germany, Canada, Italy and the UK. Playing everything from secluded coves to 30,000 capacity festival fields, The UFQ’s heady brew of infectious, cutting edge folk ignites audiences and has won them a devoted fan base far and wide.
Approaching the band’s third birthday, The UFQ’s UK tour coincides with the release of their third album. Recorded in the middle of their recent travels, “Off Beaten Tracks” is a twenty first century travelogue from a band in full flight.
