"Murphy-Clark band set to rock Pumpkin Festival"

The Murphy-Clark band annually donates their time and talent for everything that’s pumpkin. This year, the band will be performing their inspirational song, “Shine,” written by Murphy, which is an uplifting anthem about hope and recovery. “It’s a really powerful song.” - The Cabinet Thursday, October 10 2019

"Festival Fever"

Another major highlight of the weekend was the performance of the Murphy-Clark band’s dedication of their song “Shine” in honor of Milford second grade student Noah Lantaff, who has been battling Luekemia. The song was streamed via Facebook to Noah’s hospital room at Spaulding Rehabilitation. - The Cabinet October 17, 2019

Murphy-Clark is the result of a long-time collaboration between percussionist/engineer Mike Clark and singer/songwriter/mandola player Brian Murphy. Murphy-Clark is the only band in the world to be fronted by a mandola player. Joining Murphy and Clark on their musical forays are; the very talented Mike Clark jr on upright bass and vocals, keyboard master T Powers on piano and keys, the wonderful Marian Murphy on mandolin, harmony vocals and percussion, the remarkable Cindy Murphy on lead and harmony vocals and talented young gun Adam Ciardelli on acoustic guitar. Together the unit creates a seamlessly beautiful, original, upbeat and energetic musical experience with style and a healthy dose of attitude in the Alternative/Americana vein.
