A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Where it all began . . .
The early 1970s in Liverpool was a far from being the musical melting-pot it might have been throughout the 1960s. There was a fatigue about the cultural life of the city which expressed itself most succinctly in the knocking down of the original Cavern Club in 1973 and the decimation of the musical community.
It was into this atmosphere of torpor that a very young Gerry Murphy, armed with a Suzuki classical guitar first began to play in the city centre. Having already begun writing song the teenage Gerry first graced the boards at the Mitre Folk Club in Liverpool’s Dale Street in 1972.
