The Brothers Four w/ The Limelitersview all shows
Wednesday, February 5 at 7:30pm
These two great Folk Revival era singing groups will play all of their well-known hits from the 60s and then join together to play some of folk music’s most iconic songs. If you are a child of the 50s or 60s, or even just a fan of folk music, you will know every song that they perform during this very special evening. Singing along is not just encouraged--it’s required!
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. Hits include "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.
THE LIMELITERS launched their career in 1959 at San Francisco’s famous "hungry i" nightclub and before long, founding members Alex Hassilev, Lou Gottlieb and Glenn Yarbrough emerged as one of the dominant voices of the early 1960s folk music scene. For three years they were the musical representatives for Coca-Cola, and their rendition of the jingle “Things Go Better with Coke” became a national hit. A string of best selling albums for RCA Records and frequent appearances on every major TV show quickly made them a household name.
