Eamon O'Leary and Jefferson Hamer (aka The Murphy Beds) present traditional and original folk songs with close harmonies and deft instrumental arrangements on bouzouki, guitar, and mandolin. They have toured extensively throughout Europe and North America, with performances at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (Washington, D.C.), Alaska Folk Festival (Juneau), Doolin Folk Festival (Ireland), and Unamplifire Festival (London) among many others.
"their great feat turns out to be taking whatâs best of the classic Irish folk revival without falling into any of its clichÃ©s. The resulting album bears repeated listening from start to finish, with ten beautiful, crystalline songs." - Huffington Post
As well as playing with many friends and comrades from the "trad" music world they have also performed and collaborated with artists across the folk spectrum including Beth Orton, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Anais Mitchell, and Sam Amidon.
