A concert of original music and stories presented by siblings Jane Murphy Godfrey, Ellen Murphy Ranney, Tom Murphy, Bill Murphy, Rich Murphy and Pattie Murphy Voss will explore the theme of family while showcasing "Legacy", a series of artistic works created by their sisters, Annie Murphy Schuchart and Margaret Murphy Schneider. The art exhibit includes works inspired by stories of family heritage as well as a nod to their musical siblings. Also performing in concert with the Murphy siblings are Elliott Ranney, Bryan Ranney and Stephen Ranney. "We honor our ancestors by living out the gifts passed on to us," says Jane Murphy Godfrey. "In sharing this with the public we hope to entertain, emotionally move, and provoke the audience to consider their own evolving family history." All profits from ticket sales will be donated to the Angel Band Project, supporting them in their mission of using the power of music to heal, raise awareness and create positive social change for the survivors of sexual violence.Tickets Save

“Jane Godfrey writes and performs from some place deep within herself. What's clear during her performances is that she cares deeply for those who sit down to listen to her. She brings to her concerts a lifetime of family tales and experiences, stories brought to life in ways that allow the audience to join her around a metaphorical campfire or dining room table. There is truth and beauty in her songs, and she has a well-honed ability to pull on her listeners' heartstrings with one song and follow it quickly with something that finds its way directly to their funny bones. Like the musician herself, her songs are authentic, passionate and wise.”
