The Fureys
The Fureys are one of Ireland's all-time most acclaimed and influential Middle of the road, folk and traditional bands. Fureys classics such as I Will Love You, When You Were Sweet 16, Red Rose Café, Leaving Nancy, From Clare to Here and The Green Fields of France have become the soundtrack to the lives of fans all over the world. The Fureys indelible musical footprint is rivalled only by their vast collection of personal stories of their musical experiences and friendships, gathered by Eddie and George Furey along an amazing 45-year journey which shows no signs of reaching a final destination. The Furey brothers were still trying to make it as folk singers in the late Sixties when Eddie Furey shared flats with then fellow folk stars-in-waiting, Billy Connolly, Ralph McTell, and Gerry Rafferty (of Baker Street fame). Eddie recalls:'It was quite a group to be living under the same roof and we had great fun' So impressed were they by the quality of Gerry Rafferty's song writing at that time that they recorded his song, Her Father Didn't Like Me Anyway - now a Fureys classic. Eddie and George Furey are particularly proud of their UK chart success with songs like I Will Love You and When You Were Sweet Sixteen, which in turn helped bring Irish folk and traditional music to a completely new audience.
