JP Murphy Band

J.P. Murphy was formed in early 1991, by Patrick Gray Sr. who sings lead and plays rhythm guitar or banjo as well as an occasional harmonica. His love for his Irish heritage, the words and music he grew up with, made it a natural choice for him to form a traditional Irish group.

Originally formed as an Irish duo with son Patrick who sings backup and plays rhythm guitar or mandolin while playing the bass foot pedal with his feet. They performed in Orlando, Florida at Finnegan's Pub in Universal Studios as well various pubs around the Orlando area until moving back to the Berkshires in 1993.

The Duo soon turned three-man-band, (sometimes four or more when guest fiddlers join in) adding drums/percussion and acoustic bass performed by life-long friend and relative, Michael Burdick.
