An American folk group founded in 1957 in Seattle, Washington. Bob Flick, John Paine, Mike Kirkland, and Dick Foley met at the University of Washington.

Highlights from their career include: having their 2nd single released in January 1960, "Greenfields," hit #2 on the pop charts, and their first album, Brothers Four, make the top 20; having their 4th single, "The Green Leaves of Summer," from the John Wayne movie The Alamo, nominated for an Academy Award and performing the song at the 1961 Academy Awards; and having their 2nd album, "BMOC/Best Music On/Off Campus", go top 10. They also recorded the theme song for the ABC television series Hootenanny, "Hootenanny Saturday Night," in 1963.
