Welcome - Murphy's Pigs

Murphy’s Pigs, “the most famous band you’ve never heard of”, or so says Brisbane’s Courier Mail.  Try telling that to their legions of fans, here in Australia and overseas, and they might have something different to tell you.

Formed to perform at the world’s largest Celtic festival (Festival Interceltique de Lorient) held in Brittany, France in 2006, this group of performers has morphed from a quartet into the substantial, sensational musical entity that it is today.  They have performed throughout Australia’s eastern states and in France, taking part in some of Australia’s largest and most prestigious festivals and cultural events.  Their music has been played on radio throughout  Australia and in the United States, Canada, Germany, France, and Britain.

Murphy’s Pigs drag you into their world of rugged mountains, stormy oceans, fearsome battles, unrequited love, and a dram or two of whisky.  Follow them on a musical journey through Scotland, Ireland, Wales, the Isle of Man, Cornwall, Brittany, Galicia and Asturias – the lands of the Celts.

Once in a lifetime, a band emerges from nowhere
to redefine the world’s perception of Celtic music. 
Murphy’s Pigs is
not that band.
