about

Extract from sleeve notes:

"Pitcher Hill was formed by Jim MacArdle, Johnny Gray and Wally Murphy round about 2000. It came from our playing together in Carberry’s and being offered a gig in the Neptune Hotel in Bettystown every Sunday evening. This turned into one of the longest regular gigs I ever had and was a perfect way to play and develop our favourite music. So, we embarked on the gig, playing in Carberry’s in the lunchtime session and after lunch (or not) making our way out to Bettystown to play from 6-8pm. At the time we had no name for the group and decided it would be called after something Drogheda-related. After rejecting names like the Curly Holes, Butty Lane and a few others of the vulgar variety, we finally settled on the name Pitcher Hill and gave Wally one week to write a song of the same name - and a good one it was."
