news and gig list

What a summer it has been... 

Well so far it has been quite a year, the summer really was the most monumental ever for me with Folk Ensemble gigs (the full 47 piece band) taking us to Cropredy, Shambala and Towersey.... it was mind-blowing really - so much positivity! I became a Dad and couldn't be enjoying baby Sabela more - I really couldn't and to top it all off we finally have the new line-up of UFQ sorted and out on the road. Dan Walsh is doing an amazing job of both fitting in and bringing something totally new to the band.
2014 will be the first year UFQ haven't released an album but we are starting work in November on a studio album of a different kind to what we've done before... watch this space.

The Autumn tour is here and I sincerely hope some of you will come to a show. Cheers,

Off Beaten Tracks 

The latest UFQ album 'Off Beaten Tracks' is available:

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.
