Murphy Family Band
The Murphy Family Band plays an exciting mix of traditional and
original bluegrass music. Based in Culver City, California, the
Murphy Family Band began performing for friends and neighbors in
2003. Since that time they have expanded their repertoire to
include many of the bluegrass classics by artists such as Bill
Monroe, Flatt and Scruggs and The Stanley Brothers in addition
to their own compositions. They placed first in the band contest
at the Topanga Banjo and Fiddle contest in 2010 and have
performed at coffee houses, pizza parlors and many other venues
around Southern California. Click
