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 international folk scene by storm.
This year The UFQ are hitting the road for their biggest European tour to date, visiting venues up and down the country before heading full tilt into a summer of festivals that will see them take their heady brew of infectious, cutting edge folk to audiences in Italy, Switzerland, France and across the UK. Amongst all of this, the tour will see these prolific musicians recording very special gigs in London and Birmingham towards a new album - their fourth full-length release in as many years.
“There’s a palpable electricity to a UFQ gig that surges through the band and into the crowd... and Off Beaten Tracks is an emotionally-charged masterpiece.”
Olivia Haughton, Songlines
