July 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Chris Murphy and Jon McLurg return to The Cove outdoor patio this Saturday July 3rd from 5-8pm.
Chris has been the frontman of local favs, Turpin’s Trail which is a Kingston-based Celtic/Folk quintet consisting of Brian Flynn, Jon McLurg, Chris Murphy and Noah St. Amand.
Jon is a Kingston musician who performs regularly as a solo artists as well as a member of Turpin’s Trail, Goodnight Irenes and in duos with Anthea Feaver and Jessica Wedden. This award-winning songwriter also performs of variety of traditional and cover songs. His finger style guitar playing is reminiscent of Mississippi John Hurt and Elizabeth Cotten.
With a closet-full of over a dozen instruments and a wealth of great original & traditional songs and tunes, Turpin’s Trail bring together four of Kingston’s most accomplished musicians. Individually, the members of Turpin’s Trail have shared the stage with the likes of David Francey, Sarah Harmer, Ron Hynes, J.P. Cormier, Fred Eaglesmith, Leahy, and the Masterless Men. Turpin’s Trail has played such great venues as the Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque and Kingston’s K-Rock Centre, and embarked on multiple tours of Atlantic Canada as far east as Newfoundland. Until recently, Chris was also playing in a duo with former co-frontman and guitarist/songwriter Sean McCann of the beloved East Coast sensation GREAT BIG SEA!
His sense of rhythm, tradition and performance are top notch. We always love it when he returns to The Cove!
