Organs of the Ballarat Goldfields are proud to present the award winning Murphy’s Pigs at the Ballarat Civic Hall.
Murphy’s Pigs are a big band, a big sound and almost 50 metres of suit fabric. This is Murphy’s Pigs – the Celtic-rock band that the World Health Organisation is warning everyone about. Throw caution to the wind and set forth on a musical journey through the lands of the Celts as Murphy’s Pigs drag you headfirst into their world of rugged mountains, stormy oceans, fearsome battles, unrequited love and a drop or two of the whisky.
Mildly humorous on stage banter, an insane number of instruments and robust, manly voices unite to create an experience that will, unfortunately, be seared into the memory long after the night is over. Boisterous chorus songs and lilting ballads compel the tone deaf to sing fervently while spirited jigs, reels and hornpipes spur the uncoordinated out onto the dance floor.
Their unrehearsed style breathes new life into old favourites and firmly places their stamp on beloved standards and some not-too-shabby stuff they have written themselves.
