The Brothers Four
"Some performers become so iconic that they never grow old. One such group is The Brothers Four."
Pioneers from the "Great American Folk-Revival", The Brothers Four have become one of the longest-performing and best-selling musical groups in history. Today with original members still on board, their fresh all-acoustic sound and instantly recognized harmonies continue to entertain audiences of all ages. Their Grammy and Oscar-nominated Greatest Hits will make you smile, and remember, and sing along, and perhaps share a tear or two. Good friends making great music… that's the living legacy of The Brothers Four.
Now proudly celebrating their 60th Anniversary, their smooth, musical sounds have delighted millions. Folk songs from America, Ireland, Scotland, Africa, Japan and China round out a repertoire of acoustic tunes old and new.
Since the early 1960s they’ve played thousands of college concerts, performed for four U.S. presidents at the White House, appeared at countless Community Concerts, performed with symphony orchestras and taught the world to sing. They are truly "America's Musical Ambassadors to the World."
The Group’s musical million-sellers include such folk standards as "Greenfields", "Yellow Bird", "Try to Remember", "Across the Wide Missouri" and, "500 Miles". Their hit recording of "The Green Leaves of Summer" from the motion picture "The Alamo" was nominated for an Academy Award and they performed the song at the Oscar awards presentation for the network telecast.
The Brothers Four were there at the beginning of the musical movement which came to be known as the "folk revival", and of the few groups from those times still performing today, they remain one of the best known and most popular. Their all-acoustic presentation consists of guitars, banjo, 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.
The Brothers Four… "In perfect harmony with the acoustic traditions of a magical era."
