Does anyone know why Martin Furey left The High Kings so suddenly while touring the United States this summer?

The man who has replaced Martin Furey is one of the best singers to come out of Dublin in years, George Murphy, check him out On line singing Raglan Road and the hair will st and in the back of your neck when you hear him sing it live.

I'll definitely second what GUEST above posted; nothing against Mr. Furey, but George Murphy is, simply put, a great singer.

Alice and I have seen him a number of times in the NYC area, and so many times when he sings you can hear a pin drop. His strong, clear voice can fill any pub, no amplification needed. His range? Well, I would kill for a range like that, particularly his upper register.

He is also a fine person. It's been our pleasure to know him not just as a performer. He is a truly gifted individual whose time has definitely come.

I might not get an answer, but this is the first I have heard of Furey leaving the band and that is upsetting. I would like to know why if anyone has the details.

The Irish Echo, out of New York City,
interviewed the remaining three,
in between the departure of Furey and the arrival of Murphy.

In answer to the question,
the journalist got a terse response --
if characterized by "amity and resolve" --
that the touring, and being on the road long-term,
was the deciding factor,
and that Furey after ten years had had enough of this.

That's their version.

Then there is the North American company, Wooden Ship Productions.
Martin Furey is one of the featured artists on their website,
which has this statement:

"Martin will be touring North America with his brother Finbar
in 2018 and beyond."   

Martin Furey's personal website says:
"There are no upcoming solo gigs.
Check back again soon though."
