Interview: Finbar Furey

Today we have a special audio interview from the legendary Finbar Furey. Finbar is without doubt one of the most powerful singers, pipers, multi-instrumentalists, and musical composers Ireland has ever produced. Finbar was the driving force behind the legendary Irish band ‘The Fureys’ and has toured major concert halls throughout the world.

In this interview courtesy of Irish Radio.org the broadcaster Gerry Byrne interviews Finbar about the many profound influences in his life like the songs of Woody Guthrie, touring with the Clancy Brothers and meeting Bob Dylan. Finbar is a great friend of the ICC and has played at the venue many times and we do hope that he will play our stage again in the future. Photograph by Ruth Medjber.
