The Escape

by The Urban Folk Quartet

In cart Not available Out of stock

Released 1/5/2015 The Escape is the latest studio album from The UFQ.

Included in The Telegraph's Best Of Folk 2015 list.

Number 2 in Shire Folk's Top Ten Folk Album's 2015.

"This is the band at their brilliant best… [The music seems] to have that subtle natural shift, like a wind-blown wheat-field, or a Pollock painting. At times it must be like the perfect slalom run, or the moment the tube closes around a surfer – that kind of exhilaration – a shamanistic grasp of musical shape shifting." Folk Radio UK

"Recorded in the middle of 2011's whirlwind world tour, “Off Beaten Tracks” is a unique record; Both a travelogue of musical snapshots from the road - compositions dedicated to Spanish bus rides or The Vancouver Island coastline, for example - and a collection of highlights from the set that had people dancing the night away at festivals from The Bay of Biscay to edge of The North Pacific."

"An emotionally charged masterpiece."  ★★★★ Songlines
"A defining release. Music for open ears and open minds." Nominated for critics' poll album of the year. fRoots
