Thread Name: The Fureys - without Finbar?
Subject: RE: The Fureys - without Finbar?
Finbar is/was a very fine musician indeed - when The Peelers (who?) played Coventry he sat in with us on whistle on a couple of songs ... very impressive accompanist altogether, plenty of give-and-take about him. Very shrewd man, too. Did anyone see the Gay Byrne show where the Fureys were on, and another guest was Paul Daniels? Mr. Daniels made some supercilious comment about the band and the camerman immediately swivelled to the Fureys ... if looks could kill ... Mr Daniels squirmed his way through the rest of the show.
