The story of Foster & Allen began back in the seventies when MICK & TONY were playing in Country Music bands around Ireland. In 1975 they got together a small group and went over to the U.K. to work the Irish music venues on a short tour.

Mick & Tony had at this stage the idea of working together as a duo, playing ‘easy listening’ music with a touch of traditional Irish instrumentals. When their U.K. tour finished they decided to let the band return to Ireland whilst they stayed behind to try out the ‘DUO’ on the public. They played several venues in the London area and the reaction was very favourable; so much so, they decided to remain as a duo and ‘FOSTER & ALLEN’ was formed.

In addition to the U.K. tours, FOSTER & ALLEN have toured the U.S.A, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania. Their first tour of Australia took place in 1984 and in February of the same year, their single ‘Maggie’ went No. 1 in Australia and New Zealand Charts. They have subsequently toured Down Under 19 times and are heading off again on a tour of Australia in AprilMay 2019. On their last sell-out tour of New Zealand early 2018, their album ‘Timeless’ soar up the New Zealand Music Charts to No. 5.

On the recording front, FOSTER & ALLEN have to date released over Thirty albums, all of which have gone into the British charts. This is a great achievement for a middle-of-the-road ‘easy listening’ act, album sales being a very accurate reflection of the true popularity of any stage performance. http:

In 2020 they will celebratd 45 years together in the music business and to coincide with this they released ‘Timeless Memories’ which features 182 tracks from 10 of their most popular and favourite albums, many of which have not been reissued in Ireland & UK for a number of years; Maggie, After All These Years, Reminiscing, Reflections, Remember You're Mine, Souvenirs, Memories, Heart Strings, By Request, Songs We Love To Sing.

To date Foster and Allen have achieved album and video sales in excess of 20 million worldwide.

Foster & Allen’s style and easy listening sound remains as fresh and exciting as ever. They really enjoy the business they are in, especially the live concerts.
