4Square play their music with zest, fire and virtuosity, yet an understated maturity which has grown throughout their seven year journey as a band.
The sight and sound of simultaneous fiddle and clog dancing will stir the senses and quicken the pulse, galvanised by an engine-room of driving piano and percussion. By contrast, the listener is then stirred and softened by 4Square''s mellow, melancholic three part-harmony singing. An outright musical journey, all in an acoustic setting.
4Square have played at many festivals great and small, both in the UK, and all across Europe, in Denmark, Corfu, Norway, The Czech Republic and Sweden.
Their new album "Hearth & Home" is now available.
