Legends of Irish music and song, The Fureys are renowned for their hit songs ‘I Will Love You’, ‘When You Were Sweet Sixteen’, ‘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’, and many more.
Fans will be delighted tonight (March 18, 2022) with a sold out show at Market Place Theatre, Armagh.
The Fureys have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 44 years, audiences that have included former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul. Tony Blair has publicly stated his favourite peace song of all time is ‘The Green Fields of France’ and President Michael D Higgins attended their last concert in National Concert Hall.
The band was formed in 1978 literally by accident. George, Paul and Davey were playing in Denmark with their own band called the Buskers and Eddie and Finbar, while touring in Germany were involved in a road accident. When George and Paul got news of the accident they immediately travelled to Germany to be with their brothers. They then decided that they should all be playing together and this was the start of the FUREYS.
The Fureys are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. Their emotive songs stir many emotions; tears and laughter, sadness and joy. A Fureys concert is always a night to remember
