Mickey Murphy

Artist of the Month | December 2019


K&K are the ultimate acoustic guitar pickup system. I have the Trinity Pro System fitted in both my Lowden S25 and Emerald X5 travel guitar. I believe K&K produce the most natural and transparent sounding pickups which also makes soundchecks so much easier and less time consuming.

MICKEY MURPHY is a fingerstyle guitarist from Ireland and his solo performances contain a rich blend of original compositions with arrangements of popular songs, jazz standards and Irish traditional favourites. He regularly performs at clubs and festivals in his native Ireland and has also played in England, Scotland, France, Austria, Italy, Germany, Bulgaria, Iceland, India and Morocco.

He has released two solo albums, Turais (2011) and Heartstrings (2015), the latter produced by Tom Newman (Tubular Bells).

Mickey has been teaching guitar in schools and colleges for many years now and is on the examining panel of the London College Of Music. He has also worked alongside many of the world’s leading acoustic artists including Tony McManus, Thomas Leeb, Don Ross, Jacques Stotzem, Mike Dawes, Stuart Ryan, Andrea Valeri, Antoine Dufour and Beppe Gambetta.
