Festivals and Events

Murphy’s Pigs has been around, now, for over 18 years. They debuted, in France, as an energetic, rough, naive quartet, and gradually morphed into an unsophisticated, unwieldy, yet unforgettable 14-piece juggernaut. On their journey, many thousands of people have attended their performances, and some of those even wanted to see them. Believe it or not, some actually parted with their money and paid to see them. During their time together, Murphy’s Pigs has been lucky enough to have performed at some wonderful events and to meet and play with some extraordinary musicians; some filling in for missing Pigs, whilst others have joined the chaos on stage as guest performers. Here are just some of the highlights of their odyssey.
