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 had captivated audiences in high-energy performances across the world. The premise is simple, 4 voices and a high-energy show of breathtaking globally-influenced folk music.
The band’s latest tour will see the first airing of brand new material following on from the success of last year’s Escape album. The album was their most critically acclaimed to date, making several end of year lists including The Telegraph’s Best Of Folk 2015 and Dan was nominated as Musician Of The Year at the BBC Folk Awards. The Escape Tour took them across the UK, as well as taking in dates in France, Belgium, Switzerland and Denmark
