Artist Bio

Pioneers for 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.

Now in their 60th year of performing and recording, The Brothers Four continue to delight millions of fans worldwide with their smooth, musical sounds. Folk songs from America, Ireland, Scotland, Africa, Japan, and China round out a repertoire of acoustic tunes old and new.

Since the early 1960s The Brothers Four have played thousands of college concerts, sung for U.S. presidents at the White House, appeared at countless Community Concerts, performed with symphony orchestras and jazz stars, and toured dozens of foreign countries. They are truly “America’s Musical Ambassadors to the World.”

Musical million-sellers for The Brothers Four include such releases as “Greenfields,” “Seven Daffodils,” “Try to Remember,” and “Across the Wide Missouri.” 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 awards presentation for the network telecast.

The Brothers Four were global pioneers in 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.
