Thread Name: The Fureys
Subject: RE: The Fureys
Last time I saw the Fureys and Davy Arthur was at Cropredy quite a few years ago - they were great. I remember our friends Philomena and Paul only went because of "Sweet Sixteen". Unfortunately Paul missed 9/10ths of the set cos the weather was really hot and we'd been drinking 6X in a pub earlier on!

Danny Thompson did an incredibly long intro to the Fureys, involving Finbar's promise to get Dan an Irish wolfhound. About ten years go by, Dan forgets all about it, then one day Finbar turns up on Dan's doorstep with said animal. "And 'ere 'e is!" says Dan and brings the wolfhound on stage.

One of the classic Cropredy moments (along with a certain singer losing somebody's ashes).
