Legends of Irish music The Fureys will be making their fifth concert appearance at The Source Arts Centre this October.

The band formed in 1978 literally by accident. George, Paul and Davey were playing in Denmark with their own band called the Buskers. Eddie and Finbar were involved in a road accident while touring in Germany. When George, Paul and Davey got news of the accident they immediately travelled to Germany to be with their brothers. They then decided that they should all be playing together and this was the start of the Fureys and Davey Arthur.

The band became an instant success and had a string of hits.

The Fureys have just released their newest CD ‘The Times They Are a Changing’. It’s a collection of well-known songs written by performers the band have met over the years including Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Ewan McColl, Pete Seeger, Jim Croce and Gordon Lightfoot.

The Fureys & Davey Arthur 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. A Fureys concert is always a night to remember. The Fureys will perform live at The Source Arts Centre in Thurles on Saturday, October 3rd (8pm).
