After a hugely successful 2019/20 UK Tour, ‘One Night in Dublin’, Irish band ‘The Wild Murphys’ head back out on the road in 2021 and will play at The Gladstone Theatre, Port Sunlight on Thursday 1 July.
As lockdown restrictions ease, the multi-award-winning Irish band ‘The Wild Murphys’ will once again be setting up ‘Murphy’s Pub’ in Wirral, setting the stage for a night of high-energy Irish Music and more than a little bit of Irish Craic.
The band will play a mix of classic and contemporary Irish songs. A spokesperson for the band said, “After more than a year in lockdown, we all need the chance to let loose and this year the craic is coming to you – embrace the Emerald Isle with the Wild Murphys as they play a 2-hour show, featuring favourites from The Pogues, The Dubliners, The Fureys, Flogging Molly and a whole host of Irish artists.”
The eight-piece band is headed by lead singer Middi Murphy armed with blarney, banter and an accordion, alongside, among others, Trevor Brewis (Jimmy Nail) on drums, Tony Davis (Prelude) on keys, Will Stockbridge (Magna Carter) and the BBC award-winning fiddle player Sophy Ball.
The spokesperson continued, “In their own inimitable style, they’ll be putting their lively spin on Irish classics including Galway Girl, Tell Me Ma, The Irish Rover, Brown Eyed Girl, Seven Drunken Nights and Whiskey in the Jar, as well as some brand-new material never played before in front of a live audience.”
Gladstone Theatre, Port Sunlight – Thursday 1 July @ 7.30pm – Tickets: £23.50 – Box Office: 0151 643 8757
