The Willoughby Brothers,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. They are currently making a big impression on the national and international music scene with appearances on a number of TV and Radio shows including RTE'S 'Up For The Match' and the Derek Mooney Show on Radio 1. They recently performed at the Symphony Hall, Birmingham by invitation of BBC Radio presenter Bob Brolly, and as guests of Daniel O' Donnell at his concert during the Donegal Shore Festival. They had the pleasure of serenading all thirty-two Rose of Tralee contestants at the opening ceremony of this year's festival, and performing at the GAA Ladies All-Star Awards and the National GAA Handball Awards. They have just concluded a very successful Irish tour. Their debut album 'The Promise' which includes their hit song 'Where The Blarney Roses Grow' is currently available in stores nationwide, for download on itunes and from their website www.thewilloughbybrothers.com. The Willoughby Brothers create a very special sound with a repertoire featuring a blend of Irish ballads, popular classics and contemporary songs.
This new act is fresh, talented and unique and offers something for everyone.
