The Met welcomes Birmingham\’s hugely talented Urban Folk Quartet on Saturday 26 March at 8pm.
The premise is simple: four highly accomplished musicians, a dozen instruments and four voices coming together to put on a high-energy show of grooving, globally-influenced folk music that will take your breath away.
The band consists of demon fiddle players Joe Broughton (Albion Band, Feast of Fiddles) and Paloma Trigas (Carlos Nunez) with the irrepressible multi instrumentalist Frank Moon and storming rhythms from Tom Chapman.
It\’s the rich palette of musical experiences brought to the band by it\’s members that give the UFQ it\’s unique sound and approach. Having worked across the world with acts such as The Chieftains, Bellowhead, The Albion Band and Carlos Nunez, it\’s easy to see the folk pedigree. Add acoustic punks The Violent Femmes, gypsy maniacs The Destroyers, The Mediaeval Babes and Chris While into the mix and you start to get a glimpse of the band\’s multi-disciplinary credentials.
\”They combine a collective talent that will go down a storm on the traditional folk circuit.\” Folk Radio
