Entertaining audiences around the globe for 42 years, The Fureys return to The Brewhouse after their sellout performance here in March 2018.
Legends of Irish music & song, their hits include, ‘I will love you’, ‘When you were sweet 16’, ‘The Green fields of France’, ‘The old man’, ‘Red rose café’, ‘From Clare to here’, ‘Her father didn’t like me anyway’, ‘Leaving Nancy’, ‘Steal away’.
With a biography steeped in music legend and legacy, eldest brother Eddie Furey left home in 1966 at the time of the great folk revival and shared accommodation with then unknown folk singers Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty and Alex Campbell. Then, a few years later, brother Finbar joined Eddie and they toured America & Canada alongside the Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem.
Famous fans include: former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, Former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul while Tony Blair has publicly stated his favourite peace song of all time is the Fureys “Green Fields of France” and President Michael D Higgins attended their last concert in National Concert Hall. Not only this but Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics has credited Eddie with teaching him his first chords on guitar when they met up in the North East of England while Dave was still a teenager!
So join us in welcoming the incredible Fureys back to our stage for another spectacular performance.
