Dave Murphy and Janet Muggeridge are an inspired collaboration. After years of jamming randomly together at festivals and parties, they have put their talent together to form a new duo.
The glue in this partnership is the combined years of experience playing music, and a formidable skill set. Dave is rated as one of New Zealand’s best finger picking blues guitarists. He underpins their sound with driving guitar work and powerful vocals. This is overlaid with Janet’s mandolin riffs and chops and an unerring sense of harmony.
Their sound is evocative and compelling. Many of their songs will tug at your heartstrings or get your feet tapping as they deliver originals, and songs written by John Prine, Steve Earle, Townz Van Zandt and others. They cover blues, swing, and alt-country numbers with energy and musicality, drawing the audience in.
Dave and Dougal play guitar driven acoustic blues and country. They’ve been playing together for twenty years and can finish each others musical sentences!
