The Wolfe Brothers win the P&O Cruises People’s Choice Award

25 November 2021

Following in dad’s footsteps – The Wolfe Brothers set to perform on P&O Cruises after winning the 2021 People’s Choice Award.

Few country artists are shining brighter in the world right now than Tassie country rock duo, The Wolfe Brothers. And the boys from the Apple Isle have added yet another accolade to their growing trophy cabinet, being crowned the winner of the 2021 P&O Cruises People’s Choice Award for their recent awe-inspiring performance at Groundwater CMF 2021. However, this award, and the opportunity to perform on P&O’s Country Music Festival at Sea, is particularly special for Nick and Tom Wolfe. Their late father, Malcolm “Mildoo” Wolfe was the drummer in the band Midnight Revival and regularly played on P&O cruise ships in the 70’s, so Nick and Tom are thrilled to be following in their Dad’s footsteps.

“When we were growing up our Dad often spoke so fondly about the wonderful memories he had of playing on the P&O cruise ships. The fact that we now could be following in his footsteps makes us incredibly proud. What make this People’s Choice Award win even sweeter is the fact that it was the fans who attended the Groundwater Country Music Festival who voted for us to make this happen. If the old man was still with us he would just LOVE this!” Tom Wolfe said.

P&O Cruises Australia’s Head of Entertainment Brett Annable said he was delighted to welcome the Wolfe Brothers on board P&O’s Country Festival Music at Sea in 2022.

“Country music continues to go from strength to strength in Australia and guests are eager to don their cowboy boots for next year’s country music themed cruises. New for 2022, we have three-dedicated country music sailings departing Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland, offering even more cruise fans with the chance to enjoy an exciting lineup of country-music from their doorstep,” Mr Annable said.
