7:30 PM

Manchester's prodigious folk foursome brings sizable skills, gorgeous three-part harmonies and endlessly inventive arrangements to their fiery and virtuosic brand of folk-fusion.

Interweaving traditional folk (and simply stunning clog dancing) with a wide range of influences from jazz to chamber music to Americana to Latin, they create a rich and distinctive tapestry of sound, from the sublimely wistful to the irresistibly dynamic. Thoroughly delightful. _________________________________________________________________

This evening of some of the finest, most exciting and entertaining folk and acoustic music features four virtuoso musicians at the top of their game, exquisite, 'sublimely wistful' (Living Tradition) three-part harmonies, the spectacle of simultaneous fiddle playing and clog dancing, enthralling and endlessly inventive arrangements, and plenty of audience interaction. '4Square are amazing... based on the range of music they tap into: traditional folk, clog dancing, their own compositions, and influences ranging from jazz to Cuban rhythms.' BBC Radio 2 'Folk Show' 'Manchester's ferocious folk foursome' - 4Square - is now in its 11th year of wowing audiences and 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.

'A great band! Totally joyful playing guaranteed to cheer all but the most curmudgeonly up. Four great musicians at the top of their trade. Brilliant stuff.' Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2 'Folk Show' ★★★★ Sunday Express ★★★★ Maverick Magazine
