JOE Broughton’s Conservatoire Folk Ensemble returns to Huntingdon Hall to deliver what they describe as ‘an entire festival in two hours’.
Over the last two years The Conservatoire Folk Ensemble has played major shows everywhere from The Royal Albert Hall to Fairport’s Cropredy Convention and Towersey and Shambala festivals, and their new live album was also released to great acclaim.
Setting up the 49 piece band 19 years ago, long before the current trend of big folk band line-ups and crazy folk fusions, the band were drawing on influences of folk, funk, classical, ska, reggae, jazz, hip-hop and everything in between.
The Conservatoire Folk Ensemble is forever changing, always unique and has an energy and power that is unrivalled.
Using players from the prestigious Birmingham Conservatoire ensures that the standard of musicianship is top drawer and being led by folk fiddler Joe Broughton (Urban Folk Quartet, Albion Band, Joss Stone) means the music has the feel of a spontaneous folk orchestra and a show that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
If you are fully fledged folk fan, lover of any good music or just looking for a fantastic night out we guarantee that this is the gig for you. It also comes highly recommended for inspiring young musicians!
Joe Broughton’s Conservatoire Folk Ensemble will be at Huntingdon Hall on Saturday, June 4 at 8pm.
