Fureys bring famous folk sound to town
ONE of Ireland’s most highlyregarded folk groups, The Fureys and Davey Arthur, return for their third visit to Tenterden’s Sinden Theatre on Thursday, May 24, as part of their 2007 European tour.
The lads are a big favourite with Sinden audiences and around half the tickets for the concert have already been sold.
When they formed, the band became an instant success and had a string of hits including When You Were Sweet Sixteen, The Green Fields of France and Leaving Nancy.
Their folk-based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their parents, who are well known musicians, for the talents they have.
Their admirers include top sportsmen and women and politicians and they have also performed for leaders such as Australian Prime Minister John Howard and Irish President Mary McAleese.
Prime Minister Tony Blair has said that his favourite peace song of all time is the Green Fields of France by the Fureys.
Tickets, priced £16, are available from the Sinden box office on 01580 763826.
