Joe Broughton’s Conservatoire Folk Ensemble has played major shows everywhere from The Royal Albert Hall to Fairport’s Cropredy Convention and Towersey and Shambala festivals. Not only is the live performance of this 50 piece band/orchestra second to none, you will most likely see the stars of tomorrow, with 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.
Whether you are fully fledged folk fan, lover of any good music or just looking for a fantastic and uplifting music experience we guarantee that this is the gig for you. It also comes highly recommended for inspiring young musicians!
