In the Irish Mist Double Album
'Shamrocks in the Wind' previously known as Murphy's Law (AKA: John and Karol Diehnel) is a Celtic Folk Ballad Duo who travel nationwide performing traditional ballads, fun pub songs and lots of rolick'n sea songs, occasionally being joined by instrumentalists on fiddle, pipes, penny whistle and bodhran in both live performance and in the studio. Our performance makes any place a 'Celtic Pub' for the evening. We want people to act like they are 'home in Ireland' with a wholesome atmosphere that can be enjoyed by young and old alike. We perform Irish, Scotts and Australian folk songs as well as well as traditional sea songs. We encourage our audience to participate by: singing, clapping or thumping along. Celtic music has a mix of sad, determined, lonely, rebellious, happy, poking fun and occasionally, educational songs, that are passed down from one generation to the next by balladeers such as we. We try to work in the history and meaning of the songs we sing. We believe it is important to keep the 'heritage' of the music alive. 'Shamrocks in the Wind' performs regularly at pubs, restaurants, festivals and special events. We perform nationally and internationally.
