Joe Broughton, Paloma Trigás, Tom Chapman and Dan Walsh are Urban Folk Quartet.
The award-winning UFQ have ignited international audiences with their high-energy, genre-defying acoustic music since 2009. The UFQ’s approach to the folk ethos is to embrace any and every influence that genuinely makes sense of their time and place and makes sense in their music. From funk grooves to middle-eastern melodies, afrobeat to north Indian rhythms.
Their show has blazed a trail across the world at everything from secluded coves to 30,000 capacity festival fields. The band’s latest tour sees the release of Live III following last year’s successful Escape album.
