“Ghosts of the Great Lakes” is a narrated concert featuring songs of supernatural legends and spooky tales of ghost ships, haunted lighthouses, and unexplained phenomena. Happy Halloween!
Noted as a fluent instrumentalist on the 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. Murdock began his folk career in the Chicago area in the mid 1970’s, expanding his repertoire of blues and popular music as his interest in folk music and the maritime tradition grew. His focus on Great Lakes music began as a simple interest in finding the folk songs from his own local history. He says, “I sort of ‘fell in’ to the Great Lakes by accident,” says Murdock, “but once I started performing songs about the Great Lakes, my audiences kept asking for more. And the stories and songs just keep coming.”
This show is geared towards grown-ups, but families with children are welcome to attend - kids will enjoy it too!
