bigJ Tony Murphy: does anyone recognize this name? (20) RE: Help: Tony Murphy: does anyone recognize this 06 Jan 00

When I lived in Liverpool 20-plus years ago there was a bloke named Tony Murphy who wrote songs and performed them at local folk clubs. He began his career singing in the 'Wash House Club' in London Road which was organised by Pete McGovern (who wrote 'In My Liverpool Home') and Bill Moore. The song whose words you quote was, I think, called 'My Mother She Was Orange, And My Father He Was Green'. The last time I saw Tony was about ten years ago at the Carlisle Folk festival when he was there with his wife. I'll make enquiries as to his current situation. Regards.
