Not to be confused with Farquhar.

Farquahr was an American folk band from Branford, Connecticut. Playing often-humorous folk music, the group enjoyed regional popularity in New England in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Farquahr's four members all took pseudonymous stage names, but three of them were actually brothers.[1] All four members sang and played guitar. They also performed under the name The McGowan Brothers at times, playing Celtic music.[1] They released two albums under the Farquahr designation, the first as The Fabulous Farquahr and the latter under the shortened designation. Jerry Ragovoy produced their sophomore effort, which was released in 1970 and reached #195 on the Billboard 200 in December of that year.[2]
