Thread Name: The Fureys - without Finbar?
Subject: RE: The Fureys - without Finbar?
I've seen The Furey's and Davey many times, but only once since Paul's passing. On a good day they're still good entertainment.

Similarly, Finbar on a good day is brilliant. I've seen him many times too. There is certainly a hint of the cabaret, but with a favourable wind at his back he is a fine piper. He's also a showman. At times he plays his set of uilleans standing up posing like a rock guitar hero - very funny. Most times I've seen him he's had Maurice Lennon with him - another fine musician.

At a slight tangent, I have their dad, Ted's, album 'Toss the Feathers'. With due respect to the late Ted, it isn't my favourite fiddle album by a long way, but the thing that sticks out most to me is the bizarre bodhran playing on it... Very odd.
