Manchester’s ferocious folk foursome 4Square present energetic instrumentals on fiddle, keys, banjo and percussion; mellow and melancholic three part-harmonies and spectacular clog dancing. Conceived in a freezing farmhouse on the outskirts of Rochdale in 2006, the band have now played a coveted spot at Fairport’s Cropredy Convention and appeared at festivals in the UK, Denmark, the Czech Republic and Corfu.

David Gibb and Elly Lucas have been described by The Independent as “the future of folk”. The duo were nominated for a BBC Young Folk Award in 2011 and have since released two albums and received extensive airplay on BBC Radio.
