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”, “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.
The Brothers Four have noticed a definite resurgence of popular folk
music in the United States and other countries around the world during
the past few years, noting a “steady growth in concert attendance” by
people of all ages. “It’s something much deeper than nostalgia,” they
say. “We think people are really genuinely rediscovering and
connecting to the warm, secure, comfortable music of the Glorious
American Songbook. And we’re very happy to accommodate them.”
The full-time lineup of The Brothers Four, as solid as ever, now
includes; Mike McCoy, a veteran folk performer & singer/songwriter.

blending his sparkling vocal and guitar skills smoothly into the sound

been such a strong and consistent part of the Group’s signature sound
since he originally joined in the late 1960’s; along with Founding
