The Brothers Four
“Some performers become so iconic that they never grow old. One such group is The Brothers Four.”
Legendary, pioneering voices of the “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 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. Great 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. Vibrant folk songs from America, Ireland, Scotland, Africa, Japan and China round out a repertoire of acoustic favorites old and new.
Since the early 1960s they’ve played thousands of college concerts. Starting with their performance at the JFK inauguration, they’ve sung for four U.S. presidents at the White House. They’ve appeared at countless Community Concerts, performed with symphony orchestras and have traveled the globe, teaching the whole world to sing. They are truly "America's Musical Ambassadors to the World."
The Brothers Four million sellers include such timeless folk standards as “Greenfields”, “This Land Is Your Land”, “Try To Remember”, “Yellow Bird”, “Where Have All The Flowers Gone”, “Shenandoah” and, “500 Miles”. Their global 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 international network telecast.
The Brothers Four were there from the beginning, forever defining the sound and spirit of the "Folk Era". Today their all-acoustic presentation continues with the sounds 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... The Sound of America Singing!
