Sisters of Murphy are neither a Celtic-goth outfit or a girlie version of Dropkick Murphys but a highly polished Celtic rock seven price outta Rochester, New York. Working Stiffs United is the sisters (though with only one gal in the band) debut full length (two EPs proceed) with 11 original songs in all ~ tight, high energy, hook filled fiddle rock with great lead vocals and strong supporting harmonies. Reminiscent of Great Big Sea and The Prodigals at their best.
Must hear tracks:
40 Days At Sea – a Great Big Sea style sea shanty
Jack Heggarty – some Celtic waltz
Katie Dear – their number one single or so they claim
