“The Rose of Bohermeen”
Single Release Date: 23rd November 2023
To conclude a busy year that began with the release of ‘Stargazer’ and a Spring tour with the legendary Paul Brady, singer/songwriter Davie Furey has a seasonal offering. A new single ‘The Rose of Bohermeen’, a love song, has as its starting point a girl in a midnight choir “that Christmas long ago”.
Produced, mixed and mastered by Martin Quinn in JAM Studies, Davie’s haunting melody, with words penned by Bohermeen born playwright Richard Ball, combine seamlessly in the kind of performance that we have come to expect from Davie Furey.
Davie – “This song came as a complete surprise to me. I have never recorded a song I haven’t written so to be able to work on The Rose of Bohermeen with my former English teacher, Richie Ball, was a great joy. I was enthused by the story behind the lyrics and it was great privilege to be able to blend Richies’ beautiful, gentle lyrics to music.
Richard – “The Rose of Bohermeen recalls an aunt I never knew who used to sing with her younger brother, my dad , at Christmas midnight mass many years ago. It’s the only story he ever told of her. She died at seventeen.I am a huge admirer of Davie’s work so I was delighted that he not only liked the words, but agreed to put them to music and record the song. He has worked his magic here. I am more than grateful.”
Furey handles lead vocals, as well as acoustic rhythm guitars on “The Rose of Bohermeen” with Martin Quinn on Bass, Electric Guitar and Piano.
Davie Furey’s new single, “The Rose of Bohermeen” is out Thursday 23rd of November.
