Cancelled: Urban Folk Quartet at Bristol Folk House

— Bristol Folk House
The Urban Folk Quartet present a high energy, genre-defying show at Bristol Folk House
time:20:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

The Urban Folk Quartet; Comprising Joe Broughton (fiddle, Mandolin, Guitar), Paloma Trigás (fiddle), Tom Chapman (percussion) and Dan Walsh (banjo, guitar)..The award-winning UFQ have ignited international audiences with their high-energy, genre-defying acoustic music since 2009. After a decade of touring, UFQ took an eight-piece lineup on the road for festival season 2019 and will be touring a brand new studio album in 2020.
In an age where the word “folk” encompasses everything from acoustic pop to hardcore traditional music, the use of such labels to distinguish one musical experience from another has arguably been stretched farther than ever.
The Urban Folk Quartet’s distinguishing features have much less to do with the traditional idea of genre. Yes, this is fiddle-led music that draws heavily from celtic dance forms and traditional song but from there on in it is unlike any folk band you have ever heard. Just as English country dance unassumingly met with big band jazz musicianship in the mid 20th century, 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. http://www.theufq.com
