by | Mar 7, 2021 | Local Music, Music | 0 comments

The Healy’s are an Irish born trio of brothers who first brought their music to Australia in 1998.  

Gavin, Allan and Nigel and have spent many years perfecting their sound to create their version of a folk band.

The guys have performed regularly at J.B O’Reilly’s for ten years and now perfom every Friday night at Johnny Fox’s.  They have performed as opening and support acts for musicians such as Bernard Fanning, Paul Dempsey, Andrew Strong, Paul McDermott, Brian Kennedy, Nick Sheppard, The Riptide Movement, Hermitage Green, Alex Gow, Jae Laffer, Glenn Richards, Sally Seltmann to name a few.

They have also performed for Irish President Michael D. Higgins in 2017.  They have delighted fans at the pre-Rugby World Cup doing the showcase.

Their short interview on The Session (as they had a gig on) was nothing short of side-splitting laughter, not only from the guys but from the so-called professional hosts of the Session.

If you are ever feeling down, need to be cheered up, then find out where these guys are playing as their music is powered but the fun and laughter that The Healy’s have plenty of.
