The Brothers Four
Musical million-sellers for THE BROTHERS include "Greenfields," "Yellow Bird," "Try to Remember," and "Across the Wide Missouri." And their hit recording of "The Green Leaves of Summer" from the motion picture "The Alamo," was nominated for an Academy Award.
The Brothers Four are pioneers in the "folk revival" of the '60's; one of the few groups still touring year round and they remain one of the best known and most popular. Their all-acoustic performances consist of guitars, banjo, mandolin, upright bass, and of course the trademark rich blend of their four voices. An evening with this quartet is an unforgettable time of pure, acoustic music and entertainment.
After a two-and-a-half-year hiatus, live concerts and festivals finally returned to Thailand. The Brothers Four, America's international folk favorites, were proud to return to Bangkok for a two-week concert tour in July 2022. With timeless songs from the heart of America, The Brothers Four bring people of all ages back together again.
The current lineup includes: Founding Member and Seattle native, Bob Flick, bass player, group leader and singer/songwriter. Mike McCoy, a veteran folk performer and singer/songwriter who has performed with The Brothers Four on special recording projects and occasional stage presentations since the late '60's; Washington native, Karl Olsen, a folk performer, choral director and writer and arranger; and Washington State's Mark Pearson, guitarist, banjo player extraordinaire and singer/songwriter who has been such a strong and consistent part of the Group's signature sound since he originally joined in the late '60's.
