ABOUT LEE MURDOCK:
Noted as a fluent instrumentalist on six and twelve string guitars, Murdock combines ragtime, Irish, blues and folk styles with his flair for storytelling in songs. His musical influences span fifteen generations, and combine original compositions with traditional music which is grounded in the sea shanty and work song tradition—from the rugged days of lumberjacks and wooden sailing schooners. Lee Murdock finds drama and inspiration in the lives of sailors and fishermen, lighthouse keepers, ghosts, shipwrecks, outlaws and everyday heroes.
