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 shared accommodation with then unknown folk singers Billy Connolly, Gerry Rafferty and Alex Campbell. In 1969, with his brother Finbar, he was the special guest for the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem throughout their USA and Canada tours. In 1971, he moved to mainland Europe where he toured for seven years. 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.
