The sad news of the passing of Ray Murphy on August 26th, mandolin and
banjo player from Pearl River, NY reached me yesterday.
He was a very good friend for the past 30 years. He will be sorely missed by
myself and many. The sessions up at Porter House will never be the same
again. He was part of the trio Liscune, and also played with many others. He
placed in competitions both in the US and Ireland and was a great musician.
Goodbye old friend,
