When The Fureys make their eagerly awaited return, they will treat their audience to one of popular music’s richest legacies. They are one of Ireland’s all-time most acclaimed and influential middle of the road, folk and traditional bands. Furey’s classics like 'I Will Love You', 'When You Were Sweet 16', 'Red Rose Café', 'Leaving Nancy', 'The Old Man', 'From Clare to Here' and 'The Green Fields of France' have become the soundtrack to the lives of fans all over the world.

Eddie and George Furey are particularly proud of their UK chart success with songs such as '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. The band made their Top of the Pops debut in 1981.

Eddie Furey recalls how "many musicians have told us we influenced them after hearing a record from their parents or grandparents' collection". Dave Stewart of The Eurythmics started out as a stage hand working in a theatre in Newcastle and credited Eddie with teaching him his first chords on the guitar. Eddie would return the compliment by joining Dave on stage in Paris for a jam during the latter’s wedding to Bananarama’s Siobhan Fahey.
