Thread Name: The Fureys - without Finbar?
Subject: RE: The Fureys - without Finbar?
Davey was a cousin not a brother in the strictest sense. Born in Scotland unlike the rest of the Fureys, so not a brother at all. Bernard Overton told me that Finbar had a lovely bamboo whistle that he played on stage but it was held together with sellotape and chewing-gum and came to pieces in his hands. That was when he talked to Bernard about replacing the large bamboo whistle with something made of Aluminium. That's what started to low whistle boom.
The Buskers were another group that came from the Fureys and Davey Arthur history.

I'd go and see the group just so that I could say I'd been and maybe have a good night out. You'll think back on't one day and only regret the things you didn't do, not that you went and didn't enjoy it.
