The Willoughby Brothers are returning for the 34th Annual North Country Goes Green Irish Festival.
A Truly Unique Concert Experience with these Irish Singing Brothers that’s Uplifting, Inspirational and Unforgettable. Richie, Des, Sammy, Robbie, Johnny and Jerome, hail from Coolboy, Co. Wicklow, six brothers with just over a decade between the eldest and youngest.
Their passion for singing and performing, combined with a genuine closeness, stems from a childhood filled with music and singing, a love they carried with them through the years into adulthood. Credit must be given to their father Richard, and their late mother Breda, for nurturing and encouraging these gifts from an early age and introducing them to a world of music and entertainment.
They are currently making a big impression on the national and international music scene with appearances on a number of TV and Radio shows. Their music is currently play listed on Ireland’s National Station RTE Radio 1. Last summer they had the honour of performing at Arás an Uachtaráin by invitation of President Michael D Higgins. They performed the title song at the 2013 Rose of Tralee International Festival before a TV audience of 1.2 million. They have also made appearances on RTE’s ‘Up For The Match’ 2011, the Derek Mooney Show and the John Murray Show on Radio 1. They have toured extensively in Ireland the U.S. and the UK. In 2012 they had the honour of singing in Croke Park at the All-Ireland Hurling Final between Kilkenny and Galway. They have also performed at the GAA Ladies All-Star Awards and the National GAA Handball Awards.
The Willoughby Brothers create a very special sound with a repertoire featuring a blend of Irish ballads, popular classics and contemporary songs that will take their audience on an emotive musical journey. They have recorded four studio albums including ‘The Promise’ ‘Irish Heart’ ‘Christmas’ and ‘He’s My Brother’. These handsome and charming brothers have much to offer as a group. This new act is fresh, talented with universal appeal.
With songs like: Where the Blarney Roses Grow, The Fields of Athenry, Only our Rivers Run free, Irelands Call, Will Ye Go Lassie Go and many more … this will be a concert the North Country will be talking about for years to come!
