When The Fureys make their eagerly awaited return visit to the stage of The Stockport Plaza on
Thursday 7th March 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.

The Furey brothers were still trying to make it as folk singers in the late Sixties when Eddie Furey shared
flats in Scotland with then fellow folk stars-in-waiting, Billy Connolly and Gerry Rafferty (of Baker Street

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 has 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.

The Fureys will be performing all of their best loved songs at The Stockport Plaza on Thursday 7th
