THE FOUR OF US

Never before have I been to a gig where the atmosphere has been so electric.”Irish News, live review.

The 4 Of Us are one of the most acclaimed bands in Ireland, having been a steadfast part of Irish music history for over 25 years. Blending contemporary roots with rock, the award-winning band is fronted by brothers Brendan and Declan Murphy from the border town of Newry in Northern Ireland. Their truly unique sound has garnered a large and loyal fan base and an enviable catalogue of timeless songs, including six Top 20 Irish charting albums and several hit singles.Regulars on Irish radio playlists, their music has also been featured extensively on American, UK, and Irish TV soundtracks.
The 4 Of Us shot to early fame towards the end of 1989 with their debut Songs for the Tempted, which featured the massive hits Mary and Drag My Bad Name Down. The follow- up Man Alive made Q magazine's prestigious Top 50 Albums of 1992 and included the UK Top 30 song She Hits Me.
Sugar Island, their latest critically acclaimed album, explores the Murphy brothers' early years growing up in a border town during the height of the troubles in Northern Ireland.

As singer Brendan recalls: “It was a dark time for sure, but as kids we still managed to have a lot of fun. Everyone who lived through that time has their own stories to tell; we thought we’d share some of ours.”
This concert will see the brothers in an up-tempo acoustic setting - expect some beautiful songs, both new and old, stunning interplay and great stories from the road.Time: 8pm
