Le Blues du dimanche: Elliott Murphy (trio)
A Sunday kind of blues
Les Tombées de la Nuit is launching a new music event with a “Blues” Sunday every two months. American singer-songwriter, Elliott Murphy, will kick off Le Blues du Dimanche, accompanied by his faithful guitarist, Olivier Durand.

In 2019, Elliott Murphy released his 38th album, Ricochet, in a career that started in New York in 1973 with his highly acclaimed debut album, Aquashow, which saw him grouped together with his friend Bruce Springsteen in the category of “new Dylans” and the “future of rock”. The charismatic, tireless and Fitzgeraldesque folk rock musician has lived in Paris for the last thirty years, experiencing all the highs and lows of a true rock star. Aged 70, this heroic troubadour follows in the footsteps of the “beautiful losers” as he continues to explore unique songwriting, with a romantic approach to writing (a biography, novels, collections of short stories, poetry, multiple articles), and ultimately, touring.

Accompanied, as ever, by the loyal and distinguished guitarist Olivier Durand from Le Havre, with a harmonica round his neck and six-string on his shoulder, this American dandy rocker from Long Island still has plenty of swagger, class and melody. Elliott Murphy will play a selection from his large back catalogue on broken hearts, dreams, disillusionment and love, in the great American tradition of literary folk music, for which he has penned some beautiful chapters. And then perhaps he will join his friend Bruce Springsteen, as he often does, in the E Street Band for a frenzied version of Born to Run.
