Fureys return to Middlesbrough Theatre

By Published March 10, 2022



The Fureys make their eagerly awaited return to the stage of Middlesbrough Theatre on Saturday, March 26 and will treat their audience to one of popular music's richest legacies. 

They are one of Ireland's most acclaimed and influential folk, traditional and middle of the road bands.

Fureys classics like I Will Love You, When You Were Sweet 16, Red Rose Café, Leaving Nancy, The Old Man, From Clare to Here and The Green Fields of France have become the soundtrack to the lives of fans all over the world. 

The Fureys' indelible musical footprint is rivalled only by their vast collection of personal stories of their musical experiences and friendships.

Gathered by Eddie and George Furey along an amazing 44-year journey, the band show no signs of reaching a final destination.

The Fureys will jump at any chance to play and not just on stage. Stories of the band striking up spur of the moment music sessions with fellow music stars who happen to be around are legendary.

Joe Dolan, Philomena Begley, Tom O'Connor, Chris Rea, the Chieftains, Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, Liam Clancy, Sean Maguire and Phil Coulter are just a few of those who have joined The Fureys for their spontaneous sessions, each one with a story begging to be told.

Eddie Furey recalls: "Many musicians have told us we influenced them after hearing a record from their parents or grandparents' collection."

  • The Fureys will be at Middlesbrough Theatre on Saturday, March 26.

Tickets are available from the Box Office 01642 815181 or online via www.middlesbroughtheatre.co.uk
