The Trip to Cullenstown

Phil, John and Pip Murphy
Phil Murphy of south County Wexford invented a unique style of playing traditional dance music on the harmonica. He passed it on to his sons and on this recording, made just three weeks before Phil’s death, we can hear just how skilful and how beautiful this style is. There is no other record like this one.
