Anna Murphy

Goddess of the Heavy Metal Hurdy Gurdy Visits Australia – Debut Aus shows

As a preview for the highly anticipated second Australian tour by Eluveitie, their stunningly powerful featured vocalist, flute and hurdy-gurdy player, Anna Murphy, will be visiting Australia in March for two exclusive solo shows.

Anna will present a selection of Eluveitie’s songs as well as her solo material in an intimate acoustic setting, with her uniquely intense voice accompanied by long time Eluveitie members Merlin Sutter (percussion) and Ivo Henzi (guitar).

“Strange and beautiful.” Rock United Reviews

“Anna deserves every ounce of spotlight she gets because she is by far one of the best female vocalists I have ever heard” Metal Obsession

In addition to her vital role in Eluveitie (whom she joined when just 16 years old), Anna Murphy has recorded and performed with many other musicians including Lethe (a collaboration with Manes founder Tor-Helge Skei), folk collective Fräkmündt (which also features Eluveitie’s founder Chrigel Glanzmann), alt-metal/ neofolk outfit Nucleus Torn, and ambient project godnr.universe! which she formed with ex-Eluveitie violinist Meri Tadic. Anna’s diverse musical activity resulted in the ambitious solo album “Cellar Darling”, which has received ecstatic reviews.

“…a true work of art.” Soundscape Magazine

“The power from her voice… keeps drawing you in” Rock Regeneration

Anna’s solo show will feature performances of Eluveitie hits such as “Omnos” and “A Rose for Epona” as well as energetic folk tunes such as “Memento”, and of course her own works including the single “Twin Flames” and the intimate ballad “Woebegone”.

And then in May, Anna, Merlin and Ivo will be joined by the rest of Eluveitie for what is sure to be an awe–inspiring show when the band will present for the first time a massive 2 hour show featuring songs spanning their entire career.
