COOLBOY croon­ers The Wil­loughby Brothers have an­nounced an en­tire week­end of mu­sic and danc­ing for their fans.

The Wil­loughby Brothers and Friends con­cert and danc­ing week­end will be held at the Ash­down Park Ho­tel, Gorey, from Fri­day, November 17, to Sun­day, November 19th November.

Hun­dreds of fans from across Ire­land and the UK are get­ting set to travel to Gorey and have booked ho­tel rooms and sur­round­ing B&B’s for the week­end event, which in­cludes com­bi­na­tion of con­certs and dances fea­tur­ing the cream of Ir­ish en­ter­tain­ers.

The Wil­lough­bys will kick off pro­ceed­ings with a per­for­mance on Fri­day from 9 p.m., fol­lowed by danc­ing to Stu­art Moyles and The In­di­ans Show­band.

They’re back on stage at 9 p.m. on Satur­day and will be joined by RTÉ’s Ro­nan Collins, Fe­gal Fla­herty and Gary Gam­ble in con­cert fol­lowed by danc­ing to Louise Mor­ris­sey and Barry Kir­wan and his band. Sun­day sees an af­ter­noon of danc­ing to Theresa and the Stars.

This sum­mer, the brothers re­leased their fourth stu­dio al­bum, ‘He’s My Brother’, which took them on a slightly dif­fer­ent mu­si­cal path from their pre­vi­ous al­bums. It features their RTÉ Ra­dio 1 playlisted sin­gle, ‘Don’t It Feel Good’, which is an up­beat, feel-good song. Their cur­rent sin­gle is ‘Love Is Like A River’, which has a coun­try - gospel in­flu­ence.

The al­bum also features a stun­ning solo per­for­mance of ‘Al­ways There’ by Des - a song com­posed by the same writ­ers as ‘You Raise Me Up’.

The fi­nal track on the al­bum is a re­make of their very first sin­gle, ‘The Lights of The City’, which proved very pop­u­lar on Tony Ke­hoe’s South East Ra­dio Show reach­ing to num­ber one spot on the most re­quested list for sev­eral weeks.

The Wil­loughby Brothers from Coolboy, Co Wick­low, will host a mu­sic week­end in Gorey.
