Bio


Joe
Murphy (harp and guitar) has been a fixture of the east coast blues scene for
the past 40 years.  He got his start sitting in with Dutch Mason in 1972
and played harp and guitar on Dutchies last album Half Aint Been Told.  He
also played harmonica on Garrett Masons Juno award winning Im Just A Man and
has played with most of the blues acts who have come east in the last thirty
years.  His Water Street Blues Band has backed up Otis Rush, Johnnie
Johnson, Johnny Sansone, Kenny Blues Boss Wayne and the late great Pinetop
Perkins, just to name a few.  Joes most memorable gigs include playing
harp for three nights with John Lee Hooker and a wonderful week playing harp
for Sunnyland Slim.  He currently has 4 CDs in print, two with his Water
Street Blues Band and two side projects, one with Johnny Sansone and his
latest, She Moves Me, featuring Bharath Rajukumar.  Joe and his band also
has one of the longest running blues matinees for the last 21 years, every
Saturday at Your Fathers Mustache in Halifax.  Joes most recent memorable
gig was the harmonica chair for the upcoming CBC East Coast Blues Summit radio
and television special.  Joe has recently released his latest CD with the
Water St Blues Band titled Testifyin, Fattenin Frogs and Mistreating Dogs.
