Manchester’s ferocious folk foursome, 4Square, are bringing their fiery, inventive and virtuosic brand of alternative folk back to The Stables, Milton Keynes on Sunday (October 22).
Their trademark live show features the spectacle of Nicola Lyons’s simultaneous fiddle playing and clog dancing and virtuosic mandolin from Michael Giverin, galvanised by the driving sounds of Jim Molyneux’s piano and Dan Day’s percussion.
The result is a fusion of folk, jazz, Latin,and any other musical style they feel the inclination to absorb. Their previous visit to The Stables was met with great acclaim and their second visit promises to be even better.
The band is currently on a large tour spanning the length of the UK in support of their fourth studio album, “Fuel” (released last year) and to showcase their brand new EP, ‘X’, whichcelebrates 10 years together as a touring band.
Since their formation in a freezing farmhouse in 2006 in North Manchester, the band has released four full-length albums as well as their new EP. For the first seven years of their touring life, 4Square balanced education against gigging, with Nicola, Jim and Dan all studying music to a high level at University.
Around the release of album number three in October 2013, graduation had been completed and the band, along with its members all turned professional.
Head down to The Stables to experience a 4Square concert for yourself.
