Martin Furey, of the High Kings, has a unique brand of contemporary singer/songwriter folk music which takes traditional rhythms and instruments, and adds an oblique twist to produce an exhilarating sound. Alone with his guitar Martin is an exemplary singer/songwriter with a voice like an Irish Aaron Neville, which is a good thing (Time Out), and song writing skills which are inherently natural ....a songwriter of some might.. (Folk Roots). Martin started out in Edinburgh where in the late 80's his first band, Sam Harlet, was formed with fellow guitarist Robin Hurt, Al Denholm (of Hobotalk) and Greg Stewart. The band were hugely innovative and recognised as such by the vibrant Edinburgh scene of the time. Moving back to Ireland in 1992 the band was joined by Martin's sister Aine, Roy Marchbank replaced Robin and Dave McLeod replaced Al and they became Bohinta.
