Dennis McGowan aka Condor Farquahr; Frank McGowan aka Flamingo Farquahr; Bobby McGowan aka Hummingbird Farquahr; Doug Lapham aka Barnswallow Farquahr. This Boston-identified Connecticut-based quartet got started in a Celtic / Hootenany mode, then added comedic overtures. They stayed in demand for a long time. Locally the act would gig rooms like Oliver's (corner of Lansdowne & Brookline Aves., at the site of the present day Cask & Flagon, in the shadow of Fenway Park's Green Monster) doing a few weeks here and there, rotating a schedule with Dick Doherty & The Majority (or His Majority of Five). The act took an anti-war stance on the single "Street of Montreal" which charted in some places. Great vocalists & players, the witty and irreverent cast found a niche career and had some well paying jobs at ski & surf resorts.

The Elektra effort boasted a guest list to include one Lou Mauro, Eric Weissberg (of "Deliverance" fame) on banjo; Jerry Ragovoy on keys, Joey Mack on bass, and a Gary Chester on drums.
