As inextricably tied to the Twin Cities scene as any musician in modern times, Willie Murphy has just about done and seen it all in a career that threads back to the era when the Beats were morphing into the hippies. He flirted with the big time, turned down a chance to be a producer in L.A. or New York, but ultimately reigned where it counted most, in front of exuberant audiences. Of course, Murphy has a folkie connection too, not only in the material that sometimes touches the genre but also because of his ties to the potent Minneapolis West Bank scene, a folkie haven that produced the likes of Koerner, Ray, and Glover.
