Quarto in the studio - some samples

This page is a bit experimental at the moment, so if it doesn't work properly for you, please check back some other time - it may well have changed. An alternative is our ReverbNation page where all the video and audio clips are posted, along with our schedule.



The first thing we have for you is a song, The Sally Gardens. The words are by W.B.Yeats and the tune is The Maids of Mourne Shore, a traditional tune so long associated with this song that it is now hard to imagine a different tune being used. The arrangement is ours. Voice, two guitars, fiddle.

Next up, The Continental Set, so-called because it consists of two tunes, Carpathian Tune and Le Canal en Octobre. A live version of this set is on the VIDEO page. Melodeon, fiddle, guitar. Very much our own arrangement!

We'll be adding more samples from time to time, so check back here to see what's new.

Quarto, the Pembrokeshire folk band, sing and play contemporary and traditional songs and tunes. Our repertoire includes everything from old favourites to our own material and from rousing singalongs to delicate ballads. We can play for your concert, for your wedding, your banquet or any other special occasion. We can be the focus of attention or the background music. Our instruments are fiddles, guitars, melodeon (diatonic button accordion), mandolins and whistle.
