FoxFireHarpswell, ME -- Composer, multi-instrumentalist and modern bluegrass artist Conor Mulroy is the featured artist at community radio station WERU-FM in East Orland, ME for the week of December 3. He will also interview live in-studio with Denis Howard on “Morning Maine” on Friday December 7 at 8:30 AM EST. The station will be giving away free copies of his latest release FoxFire throughout the week to listeners as well.

Conor Mulroy has been a student of music since picking up his first guitar at age 8. He has traveled the globe leading groups in performance halls and recording sessions with ensembles ranging from solo instruments to orchestras. He plays mandolin, guitar, 5 string banjo, piano, and bass among many other instruments. He has written music for orchestra, film, the concert hall and ensembles ranging from acoustic to metal and everything in between.

Conor recently received a master’s degree in music composition from the University of Southern Maine, where he studied composition with Dan Sonenberg. He also owns his own record label, Melmac Records, through which he has independently released three records already: Salinger, The Glass Ocean, The Unwinding Path. FoxFire is currently available for sale online at iTunes and Amazon.

“It’s nice to hear a young talent like Mulroy being ambitious with album-length concepts when singles and EPs are what we’re getting more of.”
-Aaron Keith Harris, Lonesome Road Reviews

FoxFire is a sweet blend of bluegrass and classical music as interpreted through a progressive jazz lens. Imagine music that blends together elements from each of these styles, but still cannot be categorized into any one of these genres. The title is an homage to a specific type of algae that glows a bioluminescent blue at night and can only be found in certain areas of Appalachia.

He continues to tour in support of his fourth independent release FoxFire. He will be announcing more dates for January and February before the end of the year. Find out more about Conor at
