Finbar Furey is an Irish music legend, both as a member of the incomparable Fureys & Davey Arthur and in more recent years as a solo artist of note. 

His performances on RTÉ usually result in a musical moment to remember, and he's somewhat of an internet sensation, to boot - online, his RTÉ appearances have received over 20M views to date. 

So what's his secret? It's all about the singer, and the song - but mostly the singer. Simply put, there's only one Finbar Furey, and more than a half-century into an extraordinary career, he sounds better than ever.
