Finbar Furey is without doubt a legend of traditional folk music. I met Finbar on the set of a film we were both acting in a few weeks ago. He was constantly telling stories about his travels and experiences over a long and varied life recording and playing live traditional music around the world. He was incredibly approachable and friendly with everyone from the crew to the extras. I finally plucked up the courage to ask him to do the podcast and he gave me his home number and we arranged it from there. On the day of the interview we met at Bruxelles Pub and had a good chat before heading up to the studio and to be honest by the end of the interview I felt very close to the man and we said we would meet up for a pint some time soon. I'm looking forward to it!
