Finbar & Eddie Furey

The Lonesome Boatman (1969)


Transatlantic TRA 191 LP

There is no sound in all music that resembles the combination of Irish pipes accompanying voice and guitar, and that combination is unique to the Furey Brothers. The backing of Finbar's plaintive pipes to Eddy's wild voice gives a windswept, rather desolate flavour to the sadder songs, contrasting with the frisky whistle and brisk piping on the dance tunes.
This second album of the Fureys has the same combination of songs, slow airs and dances that made their first record so popular, and features Finbar's solo on the Indian whistle The Lonesome Boatman which has proved a show-stopper on all their recent concerts.
