Murphy’s Pigs at Wests

Following two sell-out shows at Diggers for the 2024 Tamworth Music Festival, award-winning Celtic-Rock Big Band Murphy’s Pigs are returning in 2025 for two great shows at Diggers and Blazes. They promise to drag you headfirst into their world of rugged mountains, stormy oceans, fearsome battles, unrequited love and a dram or two of fine whisky.

Mildly humorous onstage banter, an insane number of instruments and robust, manly voices unite to create an experience that will, unfortunately, be seared deep into your memory long after the performance is over. 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 Guinness, the next minute you’re pouring it over your head with a hearty cheer.

Toss into this chaos a handful of award-winning dancers and you have a potent brew seasoned with song, dance, and mirth. Aye, these young ladies are sweet, neat, and petite but they add that crucial beauty, grace and charm that a lot of sweaty men simply cannot muster.

If you like singing your heart out, stamping your feet, dancing like a loon or just wallowing in guilt-free revelry, then you won’t want to miss these shows.
