About Geraldine Murray & the Retired Popes

Geraldine Murray & the Retired Popes

Irish Whistle player and trad virtuoso, Geraldine Murray weaves Irish melodies within a lifetime of influence from all over the world's music spectrum.  Trans Trad is the result.

Geraldine's mother and paternal grandmother emigrated from County Donegal, Ireland.  Similarly, she was fortunate enough to spend some time living in Ireland and has played Irish trad and pub music since childhood. She has also spent many years playing in Original Punk, Original Rock and African influenced bands.

She has opened for such diverse groups as Shawn Colvin to Steel Pulse, played for the President of Ireland and has performed on stage with The Chieftains, Johnny Cunningham, Stick Against Stone Orchestra to name a few.  She currently performs extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest and last January performed with The Stick Against Stone Orchestra at Joe's Pub in Manhattan, NYC.
