GEORGE MURPHY AND THE RISING SONS at Ballymaloe Grainstore

Published

on

George Murphy brings his ‘A New Beginning’ show to Ballymaloe Grainstore on Sunday 9 February as part of an extensive national tour.  He will be joined on stage by his band, The Rising Sons.

At only 33 years of age, George Murphy has lived an entire life in music.

Steeped in the tradition and folklore of Ireland’s greatest folk legends, George shot to fame overnight as the winner of You’re a Star along with a No. 1 album produced by Phil Coulter. His brilliant version of Raglan Road was matched only by the great Luke Kelly.

George lost his way for a few years while touring the US, but he was brought very much to life again as a brilliant balladeer when he joined The High Kings.

Now starring in his own right, his cover of the stirring anti-war ballad, Universal Soldier, is getting acclaim and airplay on Irish radio.  Phil Coulter says, ‘George is the most exciting vocal find in Ireland’ while the late, great Ronnie Drew praised him for having ‘a voice beyond his years.’

Indeed, George’s rich baritone is never forgotten once heard.

Tickets for George Murphy and the Rising Sons in Ballymaloe Grainstore on Sunday 9 February are €22.  They can be bought online at www.ballymaloegrainstore.com or by phone on 021 475 7200.
