MEET THE MURPHYS
Middi1_edited.jpg

Middi Murphy

Singer / Guitar / Accordion

Middi grew up on a farm just outside of Darlington where he still resides with 150 cattle. Self proclaimed gobs**te, his first dip into the entertainment industry was at the age of 8 as a magician. In 1994 he started what became one of the top mobile disco companies in the north east and in 1999 he took on a contract that saw him playing 5 nights a week on the cruise boats in York. He moved onto bigger cruise ships after that as a cabaret singer but after 9 months at sea he returned to the UK and started singing solo Irish show band music.

Although popular, Middi didn’t enjoy the show band scene and wanted to do something with more edge. In 2005 he started the Wild Murphys with their first official gig at the Tyneside Irish centre. Middi enjoys life on the road and is constantly touring. This theatre show is the culmination of nearly 20 years of work and investment for Middi and a dream come true.

While his passion for anything with an engine and wheels was strong, his passion and thirst for music was equally at the fore!

Gaining valuable experience gigging with lots of bands soon followed. In 1998 Ruck went to study music at Leeds College and The Guitar institute in London. Using the essential skills and knowledge now gained, Ruck went on to teach guitar and bass at Ripon college, Nscm Darlington, Boroughbridge high school and Aycliffe high school.
