Finbar Furey has left his mark on the music of Ireland for more than five decades. As the lead singer, 5 string banjo and uilleann pipes player for The Fureys, a group he shared with his brothers Eddie Furey Paul, and George, Furey helped to guide the evolution of Ireland's traditional music.
Since leaving the band to pursue a solo career in 1996, Furey has continued to attract attention with his gutsy approach to the music of the Emerald Isle.
His debut solo album, The Wind and the Rain in 1997 was followed by the recording in London of a concert with Finbar accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra ‘We Dreamed Our Dreams: A Celebration of St. Patrick's Day’, in early 2001.
In 2003 Finbar released ‘Chasing Moonlight’, and in 2007 Sony released ‘No Farewells, No Goodbyes’.
A man of many talents, he added 'actor' to his list of credits, with roles in Gangs Of New York (2002), 'Strength and Honour’ (2007) and Scottish short film ‘Paris/Sexy’ (2010), followed by a character role in the hit RTE series, ‘Love/Hate (2011).
Finbar gained Number 1 spot in the Irish Charts in 2013 with his COLOURS album, featuring THE LAST GREAT LOVE SONG.
In 2016 he wrote and played music for the film The Wild Goose Lodge, and released his instrumental pipes and flute album, The Slender Promise. Inspirational Music on the Flute & Uilleann Pipes
2017 saw the release of his album Paddy Dear and in 2018 BMG UK rerelease under the new name of ‘Don’t Stop This Now’, alongside a live DVD.
