Joe Broughton, Paloma Trigás, Tom Chapman and Dan Walsh are The Urban Folk Quartet. Since forming in 2009, The UFQ’s genre-defying, all-embracing approach to folk music has captivated audiences in high-energy performances across the world.

2015 brings “The Escape”, a brand new studio album showcasing material that the band have crafted over the course of their first year with their latest member, banjo player, guitarist and singer Dan Walsh. The Escape Tour takes place across the UK this April, May and June and continues into a season of festivals both at home and abroad.
