Finbar Furey, the best Irish piper I have ever seen. Not the best I've heard but definately the best I've ever seen. As a band they were chasing the money and made no real pretence about that and they made themselves a bob or two. But Eddy and Finbar made their bones playing for the music and the crack and had real joy in their performance. Check out their, Lonesome Boatman, recording if you can find it, a real classic.
