Legendary Finbar Furey  Offers Up A Brand New Single Featuring Daughter Áine Furey

‘Blue Jewel In The Sky’ is the title track of the forthcoming brand new studio album from Finbar Furey.

One of Ireland’s most versatile and talented artists, Finbar Furey has been bringing his own unique artistry to generations of fans around the world for over fifty years. Finbar Furey continues to attract new fans with his own compositions, traditional songs and hits from his vast catalogue of recordings spanning five decades. He has truly reached the status of one of Ireland’s National Music Treasures! 

His songs celebrate love and life but he doesn’t shy away from the causes close to his heart, homelessness and human rights. In his new single, ‘Blue Jewel In The Sky’, Finbar takes us into new territory with an exciting electric sound, singing about the destruction of the planet, about man’s greed and selfishness. ‘Blue Jewel In The Sky’ seems strangely fitting in these uncertain times of global unrest. The upbeat rock guitar intro defies the narrative of the song which is tempered by the touching harmonies of his daughter Áine, underscoring the sentiment of the song.

“I wrote ‘Blue Jewel In The Sky’ at the end of the 90’s about the madness of man’s inhumanity to man; Greed is the taker of life.”

‘Blue Jewel In The Sky’ is the title track taken from the forthcoming brand new studio album. The same titled single will be released on 31 July 2020.

“You can rip it out with one whack – but you can’t put it back.” – Guy Carawan

Singer, songwriter, actor and multi-instrumentalist, the impact of Finbar’s work in the music industry has been immense. Finbar’s innovation was recognised by the music industry when he and his brother Eddie were awarded Single of The Year by John Peel in the 1970’s when they introduced their sound to a new generation of music fans. His work has drawn respect and admiration from artists ranging from Shane MacGowan and Imelda May, to Bono and Martin Scorsese.
