“An amazing show…Edel Murphy was stunning, the sharpness of her delivery was outstanding. The songs are acerbic and to the point and the backdrop of visuals was very powerful. I was blown away by
it”. Dick O’Riordan, The Sunday Business Post.
“A poignant and socially relevant journey over a century of music. Edel Murphy owns these songs and the stage. It was a very moving experience and the musical arrangements are masterful.” Carl
Corcoran, former RTÉ Lyric FM presenter.
“It is a rare performer that can bring a tear to your eye and a smile to your lips with the sweetness of her singing. Edel Murphy is such a performer.” Liffey Champion
