Foster & Allen
26 May 2015
This legendary Irish folk music duo began in 1975 when Mick Foster & Tony Allen formed their duo ‘FOSTER & ALLEN’ after many years of playing together. Their big break came when they released the single 'A Bunch of Thyme' which stayed in the Irish Charts for an unbelievable 53 weeks and also entered into the British Top 20, becoming their first top-selling Number one single.
Foster & Allen's mega-hits include 'Old Flames' & 'Maggie' which has seen them amass record sales in excess of 20 million sales worldwide due to their loyal fan-base. They are number one stars across the globe, scoring 30 new-release charting albums over a 30-year career, the only act in the world to do so.
In addition to the UK tours, FOSTER & ALLEN have toured the USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. They had five number one hits in Australia and New Zealand. They have appeared on numerous TV shows in the UK, Australia, USA and Canada as well as having their own TV series in Ireland.
Now it's New Zealand's turn to experience the unique and easy listening style of Foster & Allen’s which remains as fresh and exciting as ever!
