Finbar Furey at Joe’s Pub

Tuesday, May 29th, 7:30pm

Only NYC Show

Legendary Irish folk icon, FINBAR FUREY will return to Joe’s Pub on Tuesday May 29th. His last show there was in March of 2009 where he played to a sold out crowd.

Finbar Furey, has been making his mark on the music of Ireland and the World for more than four decades. As the lead singer and uillean pipes player for The Fureys, a group he shared with his brothers Eddie, Paul and George, Finbar helped revitalize Ireland’s traditional music scene. Since leaving the band to pursue a solo career in 1993, Finbar has continued to attract attention with his gutsy approach to the music of the Emerald Isle.

Finbar has been well respected for his earthy voice and multiple instrument playing including the banjo, guitar and the tin whistle. As one of the finest uilleann pipe players in the world, he pushed the instrument of his Irish roots into the sphere of contemporary music. His influence can be heard throughout recent years’ popular music from Riverdance to Black 47. Early in his career, Finbar had a stint as the lead singer of the groundbreaking band The Clancy Brothers.
Outside of his songwriting and performing, Finbar has had success as an actor appearing in films including Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York. He recently appeared in the films Paris/Sexy and Strength and Honour as well as the RTÉ Television series Love/Hate.
FInbar will be performing some of your old favorite along with some new tunes from his latest release, ‘Colours’. This is his only NYC and you don’t want to miss it.
