The oldest of the brothers, Eddie Furey left home in 1966 and travelled to Scotland at the time of the great folk revival where he shared accommodation with then unknown folk singers Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty and Alex Campbell. A few years later, with his brother Finbar, he was the special guest on the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem tour of the USA and Canada. From 1971 he toured from his base in mainland Europe. The Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart credits Eddie with teaching him his first chords on guitar.
