Bohinta– Bohinta were formed by Martin Furey, Finbar's son and now member of the The High Kings.
Singer/songwriter Martin Furey and his younger sister Aine Furey.
Martin Furey wrote all of the songs, many of which are reminiscent of Ashley Hutchings' post-Fairport Convention work, when the bassist was setting traditional-sounding folk tunes and lyrics in a rock & roll context. As a result, the haunting and extremely trad-sounding ballad "Bonnie Winds" fits perfectly next to the nervous, percussive art-folk "Fortsong" simply by virtue of the two superficially dissimilar songs being rooted in the same traditions.
Martin's fine singing compliments Aine's rich, mellifluous voice which recalls both June Tabor and Linda Thompson at points.
