Murphy

“Everything in Mary Murphy’s bio is true! Don’t hesitate to hire this woman.” Queen Charlottes/Haida Gwaii Islands Arts Council

Come let Mary Murphy’s Irish Isle transport you to a home of traditional, original and contemporary Irish songs. Many of her penned lyrics draw the listener into absorbing lore or conversely, gaiety – seeped in tradition. Her gift for melody and lyric, her rich, seemingly effortless vocal style, combined with her warm nature, has garnered fans from every age group and walk of life. Simply put, Mary always delivers truth and creativity. Mary sings mostly in the English language, but also gifts her audiences with a taste of her native Irish language, plays Irish penny whistles and percussion.

Mary’s producer/guitarist, Paul Keim, brings vibrant rhythmic elements (guitar and laud – a mandola type instrument) to Mary’s overall sound both live and in the studio and is the owner/operator of Dove Creek Recording Studios in Courtenay, British Columbia.

Mary’s authenticity takes first generation immigrants home again, gifts those with Irish roots a taste of inheritance, and ushers those who wish they were a wee bit Irish, into an ephemeral union.

” Her voice sounded as though she was unleashing audible sunshine along with a soothing vibrato.” – Port Alberni Times

Come let Mary Murphy’s Irish Isle transport you to a home of traditional, original and contemporary Irish songs. Many of her originals draw the listener into absorbing mythology and conversely, frivolity. These attributes impeccably blend with wit and storytelling to prove yet another way in which her audiences find themselves feeling personally connected and drawn into her world.

Mary’s creative fire is not solely billowed by a musical wind, but also lives on the volition of a literary one.  The Emerald Diaries – Secrets of an Irish Clan, was Mary’s first full-length novel that is currently being re-produced as an e-book, set for completion by the end of this 2013 year.

2012 saw the release of Mary’s ‘Away with the Fairies’ Book/CD combination for children 4 -104! Seven original Fairy tales. One audio CD (just over an hour in length) with Mary reading all the stories and singing three songs. There is also a hidden Fairy dressing  doll with extra outfit, fairy puzzle, colouring pages and a vocabulary challenge for older children. This award winning book also contains delightful  pen and ink illustrations throughout.
