Welcome!

From the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in central Virginia, Willow Branch is a traditional bluegrass band that specializes in providing musical entertainment at weddings, civic functions, and private events.


Band members are:  Gayle Noble - bass fiddle & vocals; Robert Noble - banjo & vocals; Doug McDonald - mandolin & vocals; and Larry Nunnery - guitar & vocals.  When we have a special request for a fiddle player, we call on Ted Lawhorn of Staunton, VA to fill the slot.

Highlight performances by Willow Branch include appearances at the world famous Grand Ole Opry on the stage of the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN; on the prime-time CBS network television show 'On the road with Charles Kuralt'; a live performance to an estimated 100 million viewers on the QVC television home shopping network; the Virginia Governor's Mansion in Richmond, VA; the Statler Brothers 'Happy Birthday USA' 4th of July celebration in Staunton, VA; and the distinguished honor of performing at the awards banquet & ceremony for the medal winners of the 1996 U.S. Summer Olympic Team.

Willow Branch has received 33 awards from the renowned Virginia Folk Music Association including twice being honored with the highly coveted and prestigious VFMA award for 'Best Bluegrass Band', and have performed at numerous bluegrass festivals in Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.

Continually striving to bring to the stage clean, family-style entertainment, Willow Branch is sure to please any audience and enhance any venue.
