The Urban Folk Quartet
Sunday 4th November 2018 20:00
Maldon Town Hall, Market Hill, Maldon   CM9 4RL
The Urban Folk Quartet have been energising and exciting Maldon audiences for the last six years with their fiddle-led music that draws heavily from celtic dance forms and traditional song, but from then on they are unlike any folk band you have ever heard of. Just as English country dance unassumingly met with big band jazz musicianship in the mid-twentieth century, the Urban Folk Quartet's approach to Folk ethos is to embrace any and every influence that genuinely makes sense of their time and place in their music. From funk grooves to middle-eastern melodies, afrobeat to north Indian rhythms, they all fuse to generate uplifting and vibrant music full of life and heart. Delivered by the incredible musicianship of Joe Broughton, Paloma Trigas, Dan Walsh and Tom Chapman, they are truly to be experienced.
Cost: £16.50

“Katriona and Jamie are at the heart of everything with increasingly impressive singing and playing.”R2 5* Review A Problem Of Our Kind is the fifth studio album from award-winning folk/roots duo Gilmore & Roberts – their first release since 2016’s live album In Our History, which celebrated a decade of performing together. Katriona Gilmore (vocals, fiddle, mandolin) and Jamie Roberts (vocals, guitar) met while studying at Leeds College of Music and began working together in 2006. “We had similar tastes in music” explains Jamie, “and for our degree course we had to write songs and record demos – we’d sing and play on each others’ songs and suddenly we had a load of arrangements that we could play live.” Starting out on the open mic circuit in Leeds, Gilmore & Roberts kept working on their music for the next five years, juggling gigs with day-jobs and playing in other bands, until finally taking the leap and turning pro in 2011 after an invite to support folk rock legends Fairport Convention on a six week tour. Gilmore & Roberts infuse their son
