Land of Fish and Seals: Keith Murphy CD Release concert
May 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Local traditional music luminary Keith Murphy presents an evening of traditional and tradition-inspired song at the BMC Sunday, May 13.
The 7 pm concert in the BMC Auditorium will showcase material from Murphy’s newest release, Land of Fish and Seals, his third solo recording. Tickets are $15; contact the BMC at (802) 257-4523 or visit bmcvt.org.
A highly respected traditional singer, Murphy’s direct and intimate style of singing brings the focus back to the beauty of traditional songs and ballads from French Canada and Keith’s native Newfoundland, as well as more recently composed songs inspired by Anglo-American traditional song. His masterful guitar work has influenced a generation of younger players and his song work creates a rich palette of textures using multiple open tunings and rhythmic ideas.
Joining Murphy in several performances throughout the program will be special guest Becky Tracy on fiddle. The two are longtime musical partners and well-loved for their rich duo program. On this occasion, Tracy will reprise some of her song accompaniments as featured on Murphy’s new solo recording.
