FINBAR FUREY

Finbar Furey tours extensively, bringing his rare talents to a world-wide stage and treats audiences to evenings of pure Irish magic, great music, good humour, and the charm and sparkling wit associated with one of Ireland's great raconteurs.

He comes from a unique pedigree - an all-Ireland Uillean Pipe Champion and whistle player, singer/songwriter as well as playing 5-string banjo, and guitar. Finbar has been round the block many times with brother Eddie, recording for Transatlantic records in the 60's and achieving fame as lead singer/ frontman of The Furey Brothers and Davey Arthur as well as lending his voice to 'New York Girls' - his handlebar moustache-swinging contribution to Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York.

Following the release of several chart topping albums and EP's, including 'The Wind and The Rain' (1997), 'Chasing Moonlight' (2003) and 'Colours' (2012) Finbar appeared on RTE's new music show "The Hit" in 2013. His single 'The Last Great Love Song' introduced Finbar and his music to a whole new generation of fans, with 'The Last Great Love Song' topping the Irish singles charts.

2017's 'Paddy Dear' follows on from his successful albums, The Slender Promise 2015 - an instrumental cd of pipes & flute (on Spotify) and Colours, released in 2013. Finbar is a supreme storyteller and these songs, which are close to his heart, were inspired by his love of his native Ireland.
