Trish Murphy & Melanie Wells: Jefferson Weekend

Friday night after the Neil Simon play, the audience was entertained by the acoustic guitar and vocal music of Trish Murphy. The beautiful and talented Austin, Texas musician was accompanied by featured event author, Melanie Wells (My Soul to Keep, Multnomah Fiction) on fiddle. I found Murphy’s original music to be innovative and possessing powerful lyrics. She performed again on Saturday, and we spoke at length about her music, travels, and ideas. As far as evaluating her song writing ability, I’d have to rate her as an equal to my friend Jed Marum–and that is high praise I don’t give lightly. I obtained three of Murphy’s CD’s: Girls Get in Free, Captured, and Crooked Mile.
