about

With their new album “Forth” The Four Bags continue a decade-long adventure. Their signature sound, a combination of disparate instruments, is skillfully deployed over ten tracks, alternating intricate originals with a diverse collection of arrangements. The Four Bags tackle death metal, Persian classical, Brazilian pop, and French electronica, ever expanding their stylistic palette while imprinting a distinctive stamp on the music. “Forth” follows three critically acclaimed releases on NCM East Records. A captivating blend of trombone, accordion, guitar and woodwinds, The Four Bags have been based in New York City since 1999.

“Exuberant, virtuosic, and light-spirited….the Four bags make smart music with a quiet, joyful intensity” (The New Republic)
