BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
George Murphy and his band will be performing in Philly’s this Saturday night, January 17th from around 10.00pm. George Murphy exploded onto the music scene in Ireland after his memorable appearances on RTE television show ‘You’re a star’. Just out of secondary school at the time, he very quickly took over the Irish music scene. His debut album ‘Dreamed A Dream’ hit number 1 in the Irish charts on its way to triple platinum sales.
George has spent much of the last 3 years living in New York and performing at Festivals in the USA. So upon his return to Ireland, he was once again asked to perform the songs of Irish folk, and in particular, Luke Kelly, the man he has often been compared to. And so this tour is a very special one given that he has decided to perform ‘The songs of The Dubliners and other Irish greats’. Expect to hear Folk songs from Ireland, England, Scotland and the USA in the set, many of which were made famous by the likes of The Dubliners, Peggy Seeger and Ewan McColl. George may also surprise us with one or two of his own hit singles!!
