The new season of music events at Reeth Memorial Hall, in Swaledale, begins on Saturday, March 9, with the return of Urban Folk Quartet.

The group has a unique, cross-genre, contemporary take on folk music, rooted in Celtic tune forms and traditional song, influenced by Afrobeat, Indian classical, funk and rock.

Featuring Joe Broughton on fiddle, guitar, and mandolin, Paloma Trigás on fiddle and vocals, Tom Chapman on cajón, percussion, and vocals and Dan Walsh on banjo, guitar, and vocals, Urban Folk Quartet’s show is a multi-instrumental spectacle.
