Newry band The 4 of Us are making a welcome return to Rathfriland. They have happy childhood memories in the town.

The 4 of Us is one of the most acclaimed bands in Ireland, having been a steadfast part of Irish music history for over 30 years. Blending contemporary roots with rock, the award-winning band was formed 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 catalog of timeless songs, including many Top 20 Irish charting albums and several hit singles. Regulars on Irish radio playlists, their music has also been featured on UK, and Irish TV soundtracks.“Tales of growing up that perfectly capture the dark times.” **** (Daily Express).The 4 of Us shot to 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 and won them some of the best reviews of their career.“Border boys in troubled times. Pop/folk of the highest order.” **** (The Irish Times)
