Sit back and be enthralled by the songs and story of County Mayo’s own Delia Murphy, sung in Delia’s unique style.
Roll back the years with The Spinning Wheel, If I were a Blackbird and other much loved songs.
From Hollymount, Delia rose as a celebrity singer, admired by music fans who appreciated her vinyl recordings and radio broadcasts. Married to Irish Ambassador, Thomas Kiernan, Delia was a star in her own right.
She mixed with the famous and mighty, but retained her identity as a recording artist and performer. She was an extrovert who liked people with the same openness as herself.
Hello Delia Murphy is an illustrated, beguiling talk with songs –compiled and performed by Delia’s niece, Carmen Cullen- accompanied by Gerry Anderson on guitar.
Delia -a significant musical-history figure- is credited with laying the groundwork for the Irish folk revival of the late 1930’s-50’s (before Liam Clancy), which she took to the world stage.
