Based in Lowestoft and Norwich, Murphy’s Lore are one of the UK’s most established independent folk rock bands and have played extensively across the UK and Europe over the last decade. Their material often strays across genres as diverse as folk, country, rock and ska, but always retains that distinctive Murphy’s Lore feel and sound. Their energetic live performances produce colourful and highly spirited events that lift their audiences and leave them wanting more.

Mike Harding (Folk Show) “A defiant shout in the face of crushing officialdom and I love it”

FRoots “East Anglian folkabilly of high degree. Clearly ready to reach for bigger things, they’re rather wonderful.”

FATEA “Their brand of high tempo Folk Rock would go down well on the festival Circuit.. Songs to make you think, songs to make you smile and tunes to make you dance”

Sue Marchant (BBC Eastern Counties) “A beautiful beautiful song and lovely lovely tune…We need to hear more of the music of Murphy’s Lore out there”

Sally Naden (BBC Lancashire) “They need to be seen to be believed…Absolutely superb…You really want to dance to it!”
