Having excited music fans on their inaugural sell out Irish tour, The High Kings return to the Royal Theatre Castlebar for one summer show on Friday July 23 at 8pm.
Four top class performers create this unique ensemble, performing new songs and re-energising the great Irish ballads. The High Kings, featuring Finbarr Clancy, Brian Dunphy, Martin Furey, and Darren Holden, are hailed as the most exciting Irish ballad group to emerge since The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem electrified the worldwide folk revival of the 1960s. Carrying on the tradition of great Irish music, The High Kings' first Irish tour was greeted by sell out audiences and standing ovations.
The highly acclaimed musical director David Downes (musical director of Celtic Woman ) has brought intricate harmonies and driving rhythms to the High Kings’ songbook, giving them a freshness and sparkle that is modern and exciting, without ever sacrificing the traditional melodies and lyrics, which make them so attractive in the first place.
