4Square

Support: Bernard Hoskin

Tickets £10 from The Globe or www.wegottickets.com

Ferocious folk foursome 4Square is winning fans from all four corners of Europe and beyond. The powerful young quartet has already stormed festivals and venues all across the UK, Canada, Norway, Sweden, The Czech Republic, Greece, and Denmark with their fiery, inventive and virtuosic brand of alternative folk.

4Square play their music with zest, fire and virtuosity, yet an understated maturity which has grown throughout their seven year journey. The sight and sound of simultaneous fiddle-clog dancing will quicken the pulse, galvanised by driving piano and percussion. By contrast, the listener is then stirred and softened with 4Square’s melancholic three part harmony singing. An outright musical journey, all in an acoustic setting.
