Legends of Irish music & song The Fureys return to the Eastgate. The band renowned for hit songs including I Will Love You, When You Were Sweet 16 and The Green Fields of France, have been entertaining audiences worldwide for over 40 years. Their audiences have included former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul
The Fureys are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. 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.
