Murphy’s Shambles delivers Ireland’s well-loved traditional and contemporary tunes with a raw and gritty style. The quartet takes an unorthodox approach to pay homage to classic melodies and ballads. They weave old and new genres into seamless pieces that go beyond cultural and historical boundaries, united by a reverence for the human spirit from which rugged courage and bittersweet tenderness are born. Murphy’s Shambles carry their audience to a time of muskets, prison ships and penal colonies, and a place where a man may have nothing left in the world but a woman’s devotion.
Engaging audiences with a balance of modern flair and sentimental nostalgia, Murphy’s Shambles brings new life to the Mid-Atlantic’s music scene.
