Venus Murphy, whose set was extended to finish off the weekend in place of That One Guy, rose to the challenge with their fun, Celtic rock. The band from Winnipeg consisted of five people, playing guitar, mandolin, penny whistles, accordion, bass, fiddle, and drums. They draw their inspiration from a variety of musical genres which was reflected in what was seen on stage: a fiddler, wearing a metal shirt. Their music, much like that of Flogging Molly and Gogol Bordello, managed to get the weary audience, who had undoubtedly been there since the opening concerts on Friday, up on their feet, jumping around. - The Quill

…The band who were to play the guitar that night were called Venus Murphy - another local band who play a kind of Celtic pub rock with incredible enthusiasm. The crowd loved them. They were very vocal about how thrilled they were to play the guitar - and almost all the band members took a turn on it throughout their set - which thrilled us as well! - Six String Nation Guitar team


Still working on that hot first release.



Celtic band Venus Murphy’s rock, classical and country roots shine through their distinctive arrangements and signature sound, and their on-stage energy creates a guaranteed party wherever they go! In 2007, they had crowds up and dancing across the prairies, including the packed Scottish Pavilion at Regina’s Mosaic Festival and their headline spot closing the Brandon Folk Festival. Their St. Patrick’s Day concert at the West End Cultural Centre was recorded live by the CBC and broadcast nationwide on Radio Two’s Canada Live.
