Southern Tenant Folk Union is a critically acclaimedScottish folk group based in Edinburgh. The group combines English and Celtic folk sounds with American bluegrass music.

The band was formed by five-string banjo player Pat McGarvey, who was born in Belfast. It takes its name from the multi-racial union of sharecroppers and non-landowning tenant farmers that was founded in Arkansas in the 1930s.

The band performed on BBC One's The Andrew Marr Show on 15 September 2013.
