Continuing MURPHY’S long association with great Irish music; Jape, John Spillane, O Emperor, Toby Kaar and The Would Be’s are just some of the artists playing on the Main Stage, Acoustic Stage and Electronic Stage at the MURPHY’S RISING gig on Sunday night.
In between these fantastic shows, MURPHY’S BIA, CEOIL AGUS CRAIC takes place on Sunday afternoon and patrons will be invited to sample some of Cork’s finest artisan cuisine, alongside a lively day’s trad music curated by the renowned De Barra’s Folk Club of Clonakilty.
