Pioneers of the "Folk Revival"
The Brothers Four were pioneers in 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 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.
Musical million-sellers for The Brothers Four 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 current lineup includes: 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 1960s; Washington native, Karl Olsen, a folk performer, choral director and writer and arranger; 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 1960s; and Founding Member and Seattle native, Bob Flick, bass player, group leader and singer/songwriter.
Can't wait for the music to begin again!
After so many very tough months of Covid shutdown, live music businesses and venues — not to mention artists and fans — are hoping concerts and tours can begin to return in the spring and summer of 2021. We share those hopes. We hope to see you soon.
As the challenge continues, please know that nothing is more important to the four of us than the safety and well being of all our fans, friends and families. We look forward to the joyful continuation of our 60th Anniversary Celebration Tour! And we'll be super-excited when we get the green light to hit the road again and get back on stage... safely.
Please continue to check our tour calendar for the very latest updates and re-schedules.
Meanwhile, stay safe everyone!
With many thanks,
The Brothers Four
