Joe Broughton's Conservatoire Folk Ensemble will be livening up travellers' commutes with four energy-filled performances in Birmingham New Street Station, as part of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Open Day.
Formed at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, part of Birmingham City University, by fiddle player and arranger Joe Broughton in 1997, the band's touring line-up features a stage-challenging 50 members. Among them are 15 horns, four cellos, five percussionists, five electric guitarists, plus fiddles, flutes, clarinets, double-bass, electric bass, euphonium, acoustic guitar, octave mandola, and a harp – with many also being vocalists.
The Conservatoire Folk Ensemble has played major shows everywhere from The Royal Albert Hall to Shambala festivals and released, PAINTED, their brand new full studio album last year.
