Bob Smith. If you need lessons for the banjo or mandolin, this is your man. Silver haired stalwart of the local Folk scene for many years, a former member of Murphys' Lore. Contact us and we'll pass your details to him.

A Half of Murphy's 'A Half of Murphy's' consists of Noeleen and Alex performing as a duo. Noeleen plays guitar, whistle, and bodhran but is best known for her vocal abilities, drawing on her Irish heritage to sing songs learnt as a child at the knee of her accordion playing father, whilst Alex accompanies her on guitar, some backing vocals and occasionally the mandolin, having returned to his folk roots after a brief fling with rock music in his youth!

"Dear Alex, Noeleen and the Band Thank you so much for a great show on Saturday. The music and dancing crossed the generations and brought everyone together. We have had great positive feedback about how much they enjoyed your playing. Many thanks for making it a special evening.

"Hi all at Murphy's Lore, We are still catching our breath from last night's dancing, but I just wanted to send you an email to thank you once again for such a wonderful night's entertainment at our wedding. You guys created something so special for us and our guests - the memories you gave us all will last forever. Having you there meant that guests who did not know each other at the start of the day left having danced the night away with new friends. Thank you also very much for Jess' personal tune from Richard - that meant so much. You are all wonderful and talented musicians and we wish you all the very best and hope to see you again at another 'do'! We will certainly recommend you to anyone that will listen! Keep Music Live! Much Love Jo and Jess. x
