“Don’t be fooled bt the strait-laced-sounding name – this music is hot, energetic and highly tasty!” Properganda Music Review

Making a welcome return to the Rose, four highly accomplished musicians, a dozen instruments and four voices come together to put on a high-energy show of grooving, globally-influenced folk music that will take your breath away. 

Blistering beats, burning fiddle tunes and elements from all four corners of the globe delivered with boundless energy and humour. It’s true fusion – not just the careless splicing together of genres.  It’s the rich palette of musical experiences brought to the band by its 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.

To experience some of their music visit UFQ and enjoy!
