    “Another Day, Another Dollar”


    Martin Furey, son of Irish folk musician Finbar Furey, formed the band Bohinta with his sister Áine in 1992. They had a top ten hit in France with the album Excalibur, featuring Jean Reno as Merlin. Bohinta released two albums, Sessions and Belladonna. Furey released Howl, on which he played the banjo, bouzouki, guitar and the modern low whistle, which his father had originally helped to create and develop. His singing style is characterized by frequent use of vocal ornamentation.
