Gráinne Murphy's


The first time that I saw Gráinne Murphy was when her mother and father, Joan and Dan, brought her to a music session in Watertown, Massachusetts. Gráinne did not have a fiddle with her then because she was just a little baby in a basket! One could see that day that Gráinne was excited and charmed by the music. Those of us there that afternoon somehow knew that she would become a musician of note, and that she did. She is a fine fiddle player who has recorded a solo CD which was given a number of excellent reviews, and she has been a member of the renowned group Cherish the Ladies. The tune on this track is performed by Gráinne herself and is one of her own compositions.
