Finbar Furey has left his mark on the music of Ireland for more than four decades. As the lead singer, banjo and uillean pipes player for The Fureys, a group he shared with his brothers Eddie, Paul and George, he helped to guide the evolution of Ireland's traditional music. Since leaving the band to pursue a solo career in 1995, Furey has continued to attract attention with his gutsy approach to the music of the Emerald Isle. He has toured extensively in Britain, Australia and Europe, treating audiences to evenings of pure Irish magic, great music, good humour, and the charm and sparkling wit associated with one of Ireland's great raconteurs. This year sees the release of a great new album, Colours' featuring new self‐penned songs such as ‘Walking with my Love'. Finbar's recently added acting to his credits, playing a singing role in Martin Scorsese's ‘Gangs of New York' followed by acting roles in Mark Mahon's ‘Strength and Honour' alongside Vinny Jones, Richard Chamberlain, Michael Madsen and Patrick Bergin. Last year he had a part in a short film, ‘Paris/ Sexy' where he plays a stunning role as a mentally ill ex‐ gamekeeper. This past year he played aa part in RTE's feted drama series, Love/Hate. http://www.finbarfurey.com/
