Rhumbelow Durban: 2 Feb – 4 Feb 2018 (currently at St Cyprians Church Hall, 603 Umbilo Rd)
2018 marks a special landmark for South Africa’s much-loved Blarney Brothers, the legendary Durban-based Irish group. Now celebrating their 44th Anniversary, the indefatigable three-man musical outfit have been at the heart of South Africa’s music scene for four decades this year, livening up parties and gala events with their own special brand of music, including Irish ballads, catchy pub songs, popular ‘newies’ and the occasional Irish jig.
Comprising siblings Paul and Damien McIlroy and fellow band member, Tony Fisher, who all settled in South Africa in the 70’s, the three Irish-born musicians joined forces to form their own professional band in August 1974, landing a six-month contract to perform six nights a week at Durban’s Astra Hotel in Russell Street. While scores of Blarney Brothers fans need no introduction to the famous group, new recruits can log onto www.blarneybrothers.co.za for perspectives on their rich performance history, as well as the titles of their CD’s, and other information.
