The Conservatoire Folk Ensemble

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. 

Joe set up this incredible band 19 years ago. Long before the current trend of big folk band line-ups and crazy folk fusions this band were drawing on influences of folk, funk, classical, ska, reggae, jazz, hip-hop and everything in between. Not only is the live performance of this 50 piece band (or funky orchestra should we say?!) second to none, you will most likely see the stars of tomorrow, many leading artists on the folk scene having been students of Joe's.
 
The Conservatoire Folk Ensemble is forever changing, always unique and has an energy & power that is unrivalled; it has to be seen to be believed. 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!
