The Fureys are of Ireland’s all-time most acclaimed and influential MOR, folk and traditional bands.
Fureys classics such as The Red Rose Café, The Green Fields of France, When You Were Sweet Sixteen, The Old Man and From Clare to Her have become the soundtrack to the lives of fans all over the world.
The Fureys indelible musical footprint shows no signs of reaching a final destination. The Furey brothers were still trying to make it as folk singers in the late 60s when Eddie
Furey shared flats in Scotland with then fellow folk stars-in-waiting, Billy Connolly and Gerry Rafferty (of Baker Street fame).
Dave Stewart of The Eurythmics started out as a stage hand working in a theatre in Newcastle and credited Eddie with teaching him his first chords on the guitar. Eddie would return the compliment by joining Dave on stage in Paris for a jam during the latter’s wedding to Bananarama’s Siobhan Fahey.
