Murphy’s Pigs

Celtic By Nature. Pigs By Choice.

A big band, a big sound and incredibly well dressed. This is Murphy’s Pigs – the Brisbane based, the multi-award-winning, Celtic-rock band that the World Health Organisation is warning everyone about. Throw caution to the wind and set off on a musical journey through the Celtic nations and let 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 that they’ve written themselves. Moderately humourous onstage banter, an insane number of instruments and a lot of robust, manly voices unite to create an experience that cannot, unfortunately, be unseen or unheard. There’s no sacred ground here. 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 has played 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. They have serenaded more than one discerning culture junkie at the Queensland Performing Arts Complex, as guests of the Queensland Pops Orchestra, wailed in front of thousands of screaming, sports-crazy fans at Metricon Stadium and have twice been awarded ‘Artist of the Year’ at the Australian Celtic Music Awards.

Their music is relished on 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, laughing until your sides split or simply enjoying some great entertainment then Murphy’s Pigs tick all the boxes.
