A enthusiastic crowd of all ages enjoyed the smooth sounds of The Brothers Four in this very rare East Coast appearance by one of the premier folk groups of all time. Their set included such Brothers Four classics as "Greenfields," "The Green Leaves of Summer," "Yellow Bird," and their powerful "Train Song Medley." Other folk standards included in the set were "Early Morning Rain" and "Goodnight, Irene". The audience was delighted to have the opportunity to enjoy their music and gave The Brothers Four an enthusiastic standing ovation at the conclusion of their performance.
The smooth musical sounds of The Brothers Four have delighted millions for five exciting decades. The Brothers Four have played thousands of college concerts, serenaded four U.S. presidents at the White House, appeared at countless Community Concerts, performed with symphony orchestras and jazz stars and entertained in dozens of foreign countries. Internationally acclaimed, they are truly "America's Musical Ambassadors to the World."
Musical million-sellers for The Brothers Four include such releases as "Greenfields," "Yellow Bird," "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 global network telecast.
The Brothers Four have appeared at numerous WFMA Benefit Concerts, and two previous full concerts. We were delighted to have the opportunity to present another full evening of their music.
