About 4 in a Bar

4 in a Bar is a vocal quartet with Classical roots and a modern, close-harmony approach to performance and interpretation.
The group is known for its masterful performance of an eclectic repertoire, including Renaissance polyphony, European madrigals, contemporary commissions, folk songs, pop, barbershop and traditional Irish airs – some arranged by Eoin Conway – heard on two available CD albums.

The quartet's concert programs explore topics such as identity, nationality, conflict and love, presented with characteristic spontaneity and wit.

4 in a Bar is based in Dublin where it was founded in 2008 and is now managed by Dorothy Alioth/KenDu Music. As a group or individually, the guys have performed or recorded with artists as renowned and diverse as Paul Brady, Anuna, Riverdance, Opera Theatre Company, The Corrs, Chanticleer, Chamber Choir Ireland, Celtic Woman, The Crash Ensemble, The Kronos Quartet and the RTE Concert Orchestra.
