Multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter, storyteller and actor Finbar Furey has announced a brand new 9-date Irish tour, that will see the iconic musician visit The Royal Theatre Castlebar on Sat 2nd June, with tickets going on sale on soon.
The Irish folk legend, who has left his mark on the music of Ireland for more than four decades as the lead singer and uilleann pipes player for The Fureys, has always been at the forefront of musical change.
His long career has also included film & TV appearances, including a singing role in the 2002 Martin Scorsese film ‘Gangs of New York’, as well as the award-winning 2016 film ‘The Wild Goose Lodge’, for which he wrote and played the music.
After thirty years touring the world with his brothers, introducing new audiences to the band’s music, Finbar embarked on a solo career to pursue a new life as a singer, writer and producer.
To coincide with his tour, Finbar’s latest album 'Paddy Dear', which topped the Irish Charts in 2017, will now be released in the UK with 2 new songs and a bonus Live DVD of Finbar performing at Vicar Street in Dublin. This new CD/DVD release newly titled ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ will be released on March 30th 2018
