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, Red Rose Café and more.

The oldest of the brothers, Eddie Furey left home in 1966 and travelled to Scotland at the time of the great folk revival where with his brother Finbar, he met and shared accommodation with then unknown folk singers Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty, Tam Harvey and Alex Campbell.

They are particularly proud of their UK chart success, which helped bring Irish folk and traditional music to a completely new audience. The band made their Top of the Pops debut in 1981.

Their emotive songs stir many emotions, tears and laughter, sadness and joy.
