The Fureys' music is all in the family

Where: The Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury

When: Thursday, April 11, 7.30pm

Legends of Irish music and song, The Fureys have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 41 years.

The group, which initially consisted of four brothers, are renowned for their hit songs I Will Love You, When You Were Sweet 16, The Green Fields Of France, The Old Man, Red Rose Café, From Clare To Here, Her Father Didn't Like Me Anyway, Leaving Nancy and Steal Away.

Their folk-based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well known musicians themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from a very early age and there was live traditional music in their house almost nightly.

The Fureys perform at The Roses in Tewkesbury on Thursday, April 11. Visit the theatre website for ticket details.
