For centuries, Ireland was ruled by high kings. As their reign came to an end, their deeds and stories merged into the world of legend and the high kings of Ireland were no more except in story, music and song. Renowned musicians and vocalists Finbarr Clancy, Brian Dunphy, Martin Furey, and Darren Holden together create the most exciting Irish ballad group since The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, and this Easter Saturday night they are coming to Castlebar.
Platinum selling The High Kings come from accomplished musical pedigrees, they grew up in households soaked in the Irish musical tradition and each member of the band witnessed first hand the power of well crafted Irish music on an audience. The four are outstanding musicians and singers in their own right, not only drawing on the rich heritage handed down to them, but also performing many songs and musical pieces they have penned themselves.
Since The High Kings started, they have sold out hundreds of shows in Ireland and the US, made numerous TV appearances, and achieved platinum status with two albums they released. The High Kings showcase their incredible versatility and skills as multi-instrumentalists, playing 13 instruments between them bringing a rousing acoustic flavour to new songs as well as some old favourites. The High Kings are continuing to live up to their reputation as a phenomenal live band, serving up laughter, good times, and even the odd sing along.
