Join Edel Murphy as she blends thought-provoking spoken word with evocative projected imagery in her live online concert.
Dublin born Edel Murphy is a singer, actor and musician and has been performing for many years in choirs and as a featured soloist. Multi-talented Edel not only has a BA in drama performance but also plays piano, guitar and ukulele.
Edel has toured extensively with shows such as ‘Celtic Woman’ and ‘Riverdance’ and is looking forward to being part of such as powerful and enlightening production under the musical direction of her long-time collaborator, Ewan Cowley.
Edel Murphy will be joined by a live band to bring you through the Dustbowl of the Great Depression, into the home of 1950s urban desperation, down streets of protest in the 1960s and into the confusion of the 21st Century. Edel will be performing iconic songs of struggle and celebration from such songwriting greats as Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Kate Bush, and The Beatles.
The Derry Playhouse will be offering a limited number of in-theatre live tickets for this event in the hope that they will be allowed a small socially distanced audience in the theatre (also includes access to watch back on demand).
The concert will take place on the 25th March from 8pm – 10pm and will be available to stream live or to keep for 7 days.
Tickets are £12 for in-theater / £10 to stream and keep for one week and £7 for the live stream only. Proceeds will be going to both the artists and The Derry Playhouse, who are hosting the event.
