A big band, a big sound and nearly an acre of suit fabric. This is the award-winning, Celtic-Rock Big Band that the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade is warning everyone about. Throw caution to the wind and embark on a musical journey* through the lands of the Celts, as Murphy’s Pigs drags you headfirst into their world of rugged mountains, stormy oceans, fearsome battles, unrequited love and a dram or two of fine whisky.
Their unrehearsed style breathes new life into old favourites and firmly places their unique stamp on contemporary treasures … and some not-too-shabby stuff they’ve written themselves. 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.
If you like singing your heart out, stamping your feet, dancing like a loon or just wallowing in guilt-free revelry, then this is one journey* you will want to take.
