Meet The Acts

David Murphy

Cork multi-instrumentalist David Murphy has taken the pedal steel guitar outside the confines of its traditional roots and into a range of genres, spanning pop, Americana and folk to ambient, experimental music and film soundtracks. His first full-length studio album ‘Cuimhne Ghlinn: Explorations in Irish Music for Pedal Steel Guitar,’ moves it from the well-worn roads of the dusty American south to a new place in modern Irish music. This all-instrumental debut recasts ancient Irish harp tunes and historic airs into the 21st century, showcasing its versatility and true potential.
