Details

Legends of Irish music & song The Fureys, renowned for their hit songs including 'I will love you', 'When you were sweet 16' and 'The green fields of France', return to The Apex in March 2017.
The Fureys have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 39 years, after 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.

Inevitably changes have occurred over 30 years. Their brother Paul died suddenly in June 2002 and Finbar left the band in December 1996, however George and Eddie have continued to delight audiences on their tours and have just released a new CD 'The times they are a changing'.

The Fureys are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination, with hits including 'The old man', 'Red rose café', 'From Clare to here', 'Her father didn’t like me anyway', 'Leaving Nancy' and 'Steal away'. 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.

Their emotive songs stir many emotions… tears and laughter, sadness and joy. A Fureys concert is always a night to remember!
