WHITE MILLS - The smooth musical sounds of The Brothers Four comes to the Wildflower Music Festival Saturday, July 22. The group presents its classic smooth-sounding harmony in a performance set on the Wildflower stage, beginning at 6 p.m.
In 2014, these 60s folk singers released their 24th album, which remained true to their telltale melodic harmony. Baby boomers will wistfully recall their hit “Greenfields,” which sold over a million records. The Brothers Four are also known for many beautiful, lilting ballads, such as “The Green Leaves of Summer,” “The John B. Sails,” “Hootenanny Saturday Night,” “Try to Remember,” “The Ballad of Alvarez Kelly,” and “Walking Backwards Down the Road.”
The Brothers Four were pioneers in the musical movement, which came to be know as the "folk revival.” They remain one of the best known and most popular. Their all-acoustic presentation consists of guitars, banjo, mandolin, upright bass, and the trademark rich blend of their four voices. An evening with this quartet is an unforgettable time of pure, acoustic music and entertainment. More information about The Brothers Four can be found at http://www.brothersfour.com.
