ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A big band, a big sound and almost 50 metres of suit fabric. This is Murphy’s Pigs – the 10-piece, award-winning, Celtic-rock band that the World Health Organisation is warning everyone about. Throw caution to the wind and set forth on a musical journey through the lands of the Celts as Murphy's Pigs drag you headfirst into their world of rugged mountains, stormy oceans, fearsome battles, unrequited love and a drop or two of the whiskey.

Their unrehearsed style breathes new life into old favourites and firmly places their stamp on beloved standards and some not-too-shabby stuff they’ve written themselves. Mildly humorous onstage banter, an insane number of instruments and robust, manly voices unite to create an experience that cannot, unfortunately, be unseen or unheard. Boisterous chorus songs and lilting ballads compel the tone deaf to sing fervently while spirited jigs, reels and hornpipes spur the uncoordinated out onto the dance floor. One minute you’re crying into your beer, the next minute you’re pouring it over your head with an exuberant cheer.
Murphy’s Pigs have performed at some mighty fine gigs including the world’s largest Celtic Festival “Festival Interceltique de Lorient” in France (twice), Woodford Folk Festival, the National Music Muster (Gympie), the Australian Celtic Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival and many other festivals, cultural and corporate events. The have performed to culture junkies at the Queensland Performing Arts Complex, as guests of the Queensland Pops Orchestra, in front of thousands of screaming, sports-crazy fans at Metricon Stadium and have twice been awarded ‘Artist of the Year’ (2013 & 2016) at the Australian Celtic Music Awards.

The band has recorded five albums and their music is enjoyed on national, local and community radio stations around Australia and in France, Germany, Canada and the United States of America. Wow!

If you like singing your heart out, stamping your feet, dancing like a loon or just enjoying some great entertainment then this is one journey you’ll want to take

Once in a lifetime a band emerges from nowhere to redefine the world’s perception of Celtic music. Murphy’s Pigs is not that band
