The Fureys are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. Their folk based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well known musicians themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from a very early age and there was live traditional music in their house almost nightly.
They have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 39 years, audiences that have included 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. Recently Irish President Michael D Higgins attended their concert in Dublin’s National Concert Hall.
A Fureys concert is always a night to remember, their emotive songs stir many emotions…tears and laughter, sadness and joy. A great night of Irish music and stories.
