Bob

Bob Smith. If you need lessons for the banjo or mandolin, this is your man. Silver haired stalwart of the local Folk scene for many years, a former member of Murphys' Lore. Contact us and we'll pass your details to him.

A Half of Murphy's 'A Half of Murphy's' consists of Noeleen and Alex performing as a duo. Noeleen plays guitar, whistle, and bodhran but is best known for her vocal abilities, drawing on her Irish heritage to sing songs learnt as a child at the knee of her accordion playing father, whilst Alex accompanies her on guitar, some backing vocals and occasionally the mandolin, having returned to his folk roots after a brief fling with rock music in his youth!
