The Wild Murphys

Purveyors of fine Irish music and quality hangovers since 2005!


The Wild Murphy’s are regarded by many as "The best Irish group to never come from Ireland" - This surprisingly affordable group of reprobates are fast becoming the most popular Irish act in the UK and with good reason! The group was formed by the short, fat, enigmatic frontman, award winning vocalist and amazing story teller, Middi, who has been performing Irish music for the past 20 years.
Available as a duo or as the original 3 piece outfit, the current line-up and format was formed in 2005 and to date has played to over 150,000 people, at more than 1700 venues, in 6 countries across the globe. In 2010 the Murphys came 3rd out of 38 groups competing for the title of international Irish group of the year in Las Vegas, USA. Their 3 summer seasons in Zakynthos, Greece was hailed as "The best Irish show Greece had ever witnessed" (HMERA News, Entertainment Review) They have extensively toured the UK, done gigs in Spain, Dubai and have also entertained for the armed forces of Germany, England and America.

Between them, the Murphys have around 70 years of experience in the music performance industry and the "Causing Hangovers" show is truly one of the most professional of its type on the road today. They cover great Irish songs from the likes of the Pogues, the Dubliners, the Saw Doctors and many others. With upbeat renditions of "The Irish Rover", "Galway Girl", "Seven Drunken Nights", "Tell Me Ma", "The Wild Rover" and loads more to get your hands clapping and your feet stomping. Including a couple of one liners and funny stories collected from a decade on the road together, we personally guarantee you will have one of the most entertaining nights around. Just check out the feedback!
