The High Kings, the true heirs of Ireland’s Folk Heritage, are delighted to announce new UK dates for June 2022.
Finbarr Clancy, Darren Holden, Brian Dunphy and newest member Paul O’ Brien make up the band and play 13 instruments between them, creating a unique sound and atmosphere in the folk idiom and re-energising great Irish ballads. They have had great success over the years, including Best Folk Act at Ireland’s Music Awards. Their reputation has grown tremendously, particularly in the US and Ireland.
That The High Kings are charting a new course for Irish ballad music – equal parts rousing and reflective, energetic and insightful – is an understatement. They are, essentially, marking out a new and bright era for Irish folk music.
