The line-up for the tour will be Finbar Furey (Vocals, 5-string Banjo, Guitar, Whistle, Uileann pipes), Peter Eades (Piano, Electric Guitar, Strings, Cuatro, Backing Vocals) and Paul O’Driscoll (Double Bass, Backing Vocals).

The Irish folk legend, who has left his mark on the music of Ireland for more than four decades as the lead singer and uilleann pipes player for the Fureys, has always been at the forefront of musical change. His long career has also included film & TV appearances, including a singing role in the 2002 Martin Scorsese film ‘Gangs of New York’ as well as the award-winning 2016 film ‘The Wild Goose Lodge’, for which he wrote and played the music. 

To coincide with his tour, Finbar’s latest album 'Paddy Dear', which topped the Irish Charts in 2017, will be re-released in Ireland and the UK with new songs, and a bonus Live DVD of Finbar performing at Vicar Street Dublin. This new CD/DVD release newly titled ‘Don’t Stop This Now’ will be released on 30 March 2018 by BMG, and distributed in Ireland by Universal.

Fans can expect to be treated to Finbar’s rare talents as he brings pure Irish music and humour to the stage. At the age of 71, this supreme musician is not for slowing down – on the upcoming tour Finbar commented: “Too late to stop now!”
