The Powerfolk Quartet
The PowerFolk Quartet is a collaboration of music-makers on a folk, acoustic and roots-lead musical adventure.
Singer/songwriters Lisa Fitzgibbon & Jon Fletcher power the band with original songs from a combined back-catalogue of over seven original albums.
Fiddle/viola player Jane Griffiths is the ethereal entity in this unique combination of musical pioneers.
Bassist/guitarist Colin Fletcher holds it all together as the bottom-line grace master.
Highly acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Jon Fletcher plays guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, and harmonica.
Lisa Fitzgibbon’s “tears herself open with each song, vulnerable but powerfully gutsy – and I fall for her and her plight, along with the rest of the crowd.” – Wight Vibe UK
The PFQ have shared the stage with musical legends such as Arlo Gutherie, Roger McGuinn (The Byrds), Chris Difford (Squeeze), Ani Difranco, Martyn Hayes and Denis Cahil, Eliza Carthy & The Waifs, just to name a few.
From the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury Festival to small folk clubs in the Midlands; from the front bar of Melbourne’s famous Espy Hotel to London’s Shepherds Bush Empire; from the esteemed Cambridge Folk Festival to the bijous Catweazle Club in Oxford… the PFQ is totally at home in every live situation.
