Fureys bring fa­mous folk sound to town

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - SOUNDS GOOD -

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.
