About

While hailed as “one of the best local bluegrass bands in LA” by CBS Los Angeles, Murphy’s Flaw’s musical explorations actually extend across the panoply of American roots music: folk, country, rockabilly, jazz, pop and western swing.

The group’s repertoire features classic bluegrass tunes pioneered by bands of the ’40s and ’50s, such as Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, to name a few; the ’50s rockabilly tunes of Elvis Pressley and the Everly Brothers; and bluegrass-arranged versions of ’60s favorites and contemporary groups including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Old Crow Medicine Show and Darius Rucker.
