George Murphy and The Rising Sons

George Murphy and the Rising Sons.

At only 33 years of age, George Murphy has lived an entire life in music.

Steeped in the tradition and folklore of Ireland’s greatest folk legends, George shot to fame overnight as the winner of You’re a Star along with a No. 1 album produced by Phil Coulter. His brilliant version of Raglan Road was matched only by the great Luke Kelly.

George lost his way for a few years while touring the US, but he was brought very much to life again as a brilliant balladeer when he joined The High Kings. He brings his ‘A New Beginning’ show to Ballymaloe Grainstore as part of an extensive national tour.

George is the most exciting vocal find in Ireland. - Phil Coulter

A voice beyond his years. – Ronnie Drew

A very honest approach to the songs. - Peggy Seeger
