Finbar Furey

The Irish folk legend, who has left his mark on the music of Ireland for more than four decades as the lead singer and uilleann pipes player for the Fureys, has always been at the forefront of musical change. His career has also included film & TV appearances, including a singing role in the Martin Scorsese film ‘Gangs of New York’ as well as the award-winning ‘The Wild Goose Lodge’, for which he wrote and played the music.

To coincide with the tour, Finbar’s latest album ‘Paddy Dear’, which topped the Irish Charts in 2017, will be re-released in the UK, with new songs and a bonus Live DVD of Finbar performing at Vicar Street Dublin. This new CD/DVD release newly titled ‘Don’t Stop This Now’ will be released on 30 March

Fans can expect an intimate setting at these special shows, and to be treated to Finbar’s rare talents as he brings pure Irish music and humour to the stage. At the age of 71, this supreme musician is not for slowing down – on the upcoming tour Finbar commented: “Too late to stop now!” The line-up for the tour will be Finbar Furey (Vocals, 5-string Banjo, Guitar, Whistle, Uileann pipes), Peter Eades (Piano, Electric Guitar, Strings, Cuatro, Backing Vocals) and Paul O’Driscoll (Double Bass, Backing Vocals).

Paddy Dear is a lovely album from one of the enduring greats of Irish music. It confirms that Finbar Furey is not just a superb musician. He is a wonderful singer, a songwriter of genuine originality and a marvellous interpreter.

‘Finbar Furey proves that he is not just a massive force in Irish music’s heritage, he is a massive force in shaping its future as well’

Shane MacGowan

'Finbar Furey, even his name sings defiantly. It’s worth living long enough to hear that defiance and wisdom deepen, soften, yet never bend. It’s so great to see him. Whenever I do I’m reminded of the promise I made to myself: stay the road, stay true to yourself and your song. This man has it in spades’
