Elliott Murphy at the University Café December 6

ELLIOTT MURPHYFrom his acclaimed 1973 debut album, Aquashow, to this year’s Notes from the Underground, Long Island’s Elliott Murphy, singer-songwriter, rock troubadour, indefatigable road warrior, and prolific author of fiction has once again proven his dedication to his music and his ability to deliver a high-energy show. He comes to the University Café on Sunday, December 6, at 2:00 pm as part of the Sunday Street Acoustic Series.

Born to a show business family, Murphy followed his Garden City childhood by busking in European cities before he quickly secured a recording contract and turned out several critically acclaimed albums in the 1970s. His 1973 debut, Aquashow, was a critic’s favorite and led to several other heralded albums, including 1977’s Just a Story from America, which featured Phil Collins and the Rolling Stone’s Mick Taylor.

A move to Paris in 1989 saw Murphy developing a loyal following in Europe and led his American fans to ask when he would return. Murphy has responded by recently touring in the U.S. with outstanding guitarist Olivier Durand and a batch of new songs.

Advance sale tickets are $20 at www.universitycafe.org until December 3, with no service charge. Tickets at the door (if available) are $25.

The Sunday Street Acoustic Series is co-sponsored by WUSB-FM (90.1fm) and is produced by Charlie Backfish.
