Keith Murphy & Becky Tracy

Keith Murphy and Becky Tracy

Keith Murphy & Becky Tracy are dynamic performers of traditional music from Newfoundland, Québec, Ireland, France and beyond. Tracy’s fiddling pulses through tasteful arrangements of dance tunes and resonates with beauty on traditional slow airs. Keith’s gentle and expressive singing in English and French is balanced by the drive and power of his guitar playing and foot percussion. Combined, they produce a range and richness of sound that is striking for a duo. Their playing is seamless, the result of years of playing together and touring across the U.S., Canada and in Europe. Their repertoire also includes Keith’s original compositions. He is a prolific tunesmith with a writing style strongly based on traditional dance music. Keith and Becky were two-thirds of the popular trio, Nightingale, and are veterans of several other bands including Childsplay and Assemby (Keith) and Wild Asparagus (Becky).
