Bob

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!

" A massive thank you to Murphy's Lore for an incredible night! I can't count the number of people who came up to me during the night, and afterwards, to praise the band and Julian's calling. It all seemed to run very smoothly thanks to your expertise. We really enjoyed hearing the band's own compositions and loved that final dance where we spiralled in and out, it was fantastic! Thanks again for a truly memorable night.

" I had to write to say the biggest THANK YOU to you and the rest of the band. You were absolutely fantastic and although it did start slowly, by the end, I think people would have gone on all night...they were enjoying it all so much. We have had so many people complimenting us on a such a fabulous party. I can guarantee, if the opportunity arises, we will be asking you to do any other parties we organise, and will be recommending you to others.
