Fairytale of New York (Track 14) 


George Murphy is an Irish musician who hails from the north Dublin suburb of Beaumont. He had never performed as a singer before his audition and subsequent rise to fame on the Irish TV show ‘You’re a Star’, chosen as a stand out by Irish composer, Phil Coulter. His voice has been described as a cross between Luke Kelly and Bruce Springsteen and has a maturity that attracts fans of all ages.  The Irish music magazine Hot Press summed it up:  “For a 17 year-old to possess such a wildly evocative Dublin howl is extraordinary to the point of being unbelievable.” He went on to release two cds in Ireland. In  2010, George  released his first CD in the US called ‘The Ballads of Archie Thompson’ which includes covers of not only some traditional tunes such as ‘The Auld Triangle’ but also Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger covers along with George’s original tunes . George has been touring in the US and Ireland the past three years and will be recording a new album in 2013. On our album he is the male lead with Emma Kate Tobia on the Pogues Irish Christmas favorite, ‘Fairytale of New York.’
