ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Murphy Beds
Traditional Music, made on NYC’s Lower East Side.
Eamon O’Leary – Bouzouki, Guitar, Vocals
Jefferson Hamer – Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals

The Murphy Beds (Jefferson Hamer and Eamon O’Leary) present traditional Irish and American songs with close harmonies and deft instrumental arrangements on bouzouki, guitar, and mandolin.

“their great feat turns out to be taking what’s best of the classic Irish folk revival without falling into any of its clichés. The resulting album bears repeated listening from start to finish, with ten beautiful, crystalline songs.” -Huffington Post

Eamon started playing Irish music while growing up in Dublin through his friendship with the Mayock family, traditional musicians from County Mayo. When he moved to New York City in the early 90′s, he immersed himself in the city’s traditional music scene and travelled widely, performing with many of the great players in Irish music. In 2004 he and fiddler Patrick Ourceau released the album ‘Live at Mona’s’. Eamon has taught at many traditional music programs in the US and also records and performs original music.

Jefferson is a singer and guitarist based in Brooklyn. In 2013 he released a duo album with songwriter Anais Mitchell titled Child Ballads, a collection of new adaptations of English and Scottish folk songs, carefully re-imagined to reflect an American country-duet sensibility. In the Oct. 2013 issue, Acoustic Guitar magazine wrote, “A gifted guitarist and singer, Hamer is able to hit close harmonies… and weave gorgeous instrumental lines.”
