The Brothers Four - 50 years later

The Brothers Four, Saturday, March 14, 7:30pm, Northshore Performing Arts Center, 

50 Great Years! Now proudly celebrating their GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY, The Brothers Four got their start at the University of Washington, where they were members of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity in 1956 (hence the "Brothers" appellation).

Their first professional performances were the result of a prank played on them in 1958 by a rival fraternity, who had arranged for someone to call them, pretend to be from Seattle's Colony Club, and invite them to come down to audition for a gig.

Even though they were not expected at the club, they were allowed to sing a few songs, and were subsequently hired. Flick recalls them being paid "mostly in beer."

The Brothers Four were pioneers in the musical movement which came to be known as the "folk revival," and they remain one of the best known and most popular. Their all-acoustic presentation consists 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. The Brothers Four... in perfect harmony with America's greatest folk hits!

Adults: $30; Seniors (62+): $27; Youth (16 and younger): $10
