The Willoughby Brothers are coming to NY!


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. In the seventies and eighties their parents had their own popular country band ‘The Moonsiders’, performing at dances and shows across the country.
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 their most recent performance on The Marty Morrissey Show on Radio 1. 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 the U.S. and the UK, and have a further U.S tour planned for December 2015. In 2012 they had the honour of singing in Croke Park at the All-Ireland Hurling Final replay between Kilkenny and Galway. They have also performed at the GAA Ladies All-Star Awards and the National GAA Handball Awards.
