Music The Fureys Tuesday 26 May7.30pm
The Fureys

Legends of Irish music & song The FUREYS, 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’, ‘Steal away’ etc will perform once again in Ucheldre.

The FUREYS have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 37 years, audiences that have included former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, Former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul while Tony Blair has publicly stated his favourite peace song of all time is the FUREYS “Green Fields of France”. Recently Ireland President Michael D Higgins attended their concert in Dublin’s National Concert Hall. 

The band was formed in 1978 literally by accident. George, Paul and Davey were playing in Denmark with their own band called the Buskers and Eddie and Finbar, while touring in Germany were involved in a road accident. When George and Paul got news of the accident they immediately travelled to Germany to be with their brothers. They then decided that they should all be playing together and this was the start of the FUREYS. 

Inevitably changes have occurred over 30 years. Their brother Paul died suddenly in June 2002 and Finbar left the band in December 1996, however George and Eddie have continued to delight audiences on their tours and have just released a new CD ‘The times they are a changing’. 

The oldest of the brothers, Eddie Furey left home in 1966 and travelled to Scotland at the time of the great folk revival where he met and shared accommodation in Edinburgh with then unknown folk singers Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty and Alex Campbell, now all famous in their own right. In 1969 with his brother Finbar, he was the special guest for the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem throughout the USA and Canada. In 1971 he moved to mainland Europe where he toured for seven years, building up a huge following particularly in Germany. Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics has credited Eddie with teaching him his first chords on guitar when they met up in the North East of England while Dave was still a teenager. 

The FUREYS are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. 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. 

Their emotive songs stir many emotions….tears and laughter, sadness and joy. 

A FUREYS concert is always a night to remember

Literary Lit Soc:  Ric Hool  Poetry Workshop Saturday/Sadwrn 30 May/Mai   10am - 3pm

Ric Hool's Poetry Workshop

Writing Through Objects

Welcome return of poet Ric Hool who begins today’s workshop with the thought that our lives are filled with objects, and that raises a number of questions.  What do objects mean to us?  What do they signify?  What value do we place on them?  How do they shape our identities, the spaces we inhabit, and our engagement with these spaces? What stories can an object tell?

The relationships between humans and objects can be complex. Objects both shape and reveal our identities and narratives are woven consciously and unconsciously around objects in the construction of self.
Alison Munro

Participants are asked to bring an object of their own to the workshop that is of particular significance to them. There will also be a selection of objects provided. 

Following the workshop Ric will read some of his own work.

Broadcast ROH Live: La Bohéme (Puccini opera) Wednesday 10 June7.15pm

ROH Live: La Bohéme (Puccini opera)

The most popular opera of all returns in one of The Royal Opera’s best loved stagings, regularly revived since its opening night in 1974 – and now being seen for the very last time. John Copley’s keen stagecraft and loving attention to period and dramatic detail make his production a masterpiece of realism, while Julia Trevelyan Oman’s designs evoke the atmosphere of 19th-century Paris. Several of today’s greatest opera stars return to bid farewell to this sublime staging, notably Anna Netrebko as Mimì, and Joseph Calleja as her lover, Rodolfo. Israeli conductor Dan Ettinger conducts one of Puccini’s most emotional and melodious scores, in a revival that promises to go down in Royal Opera history. 

Cast to include: Mimì - Anna Netrebk, Rodolfo - Joseph Callej, Marcello - Lucas Meache, Musetta - Jennifer Rowley

ENO Live: Carmen (Bizet)

Probably the most popular opera in the world.  Carmen scandalised its earliest audiences with its raw depiction of lust in 19th-century Seville.  In ENO’s popular production, the action is a full-on battle of the sexes, fought out in the arena of the Spanish bullring.

Broadcast ROH Live: William Tell (Rossini opera) Sunday 5 July2.45pm
ROH Live: William Tell (Rossini opera)


Opening with what is arguably the most exciting of all operatic overtures, Rossini’s final opera helped to lay the foundations of the genre of French grand opéra that dominated European stages throughout the mid-19th century.

The opera’s theme is liberty, as exemplified in the struggle against Austrian occupation led by the Swiss archer and patriot Guillaume Tell: in the opera’s most famous scene, Tell shoots an apple from his son’s head, a feat that inspires his countrymen to revolt. Rossini’s score is one of his most outstanding, and packed with glorious arias, choruses and ensembles, as those who have heard Antonio Pappano’s admired recording – which also features Gerald Finley (Tell), John Osborn (Arnold) and Malin Byström (Mathilde) – will know. The exciting young Italian director Damiano Michieletto makes his debut with what promises to be a spectacular and thought-provoking production. 

Cast to include: William Tell - Gerald Finley, Arnold Melchtal - John Osborn,

Mathilde - Malin Byström, Hedwige - Enkelejda Shkosa,  Jemmy - Sofia Fomina,

Gesler - Nicolas Courjal
