The High Kings are Finbarr Clancy, Darren Holden, Paul O’ Brien and Brian Dunphy.  Between them they play 13 instruments, creating their unique sound and atmosphere in the folk idiom and re-energise 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, and they have had enormous success both within the US and Ireland.

They have charted across the world and performed for hundreds of thousands of fans, as well as in many prestigious situations including for the Prime Minister of England (2011), Barak Obama (2012) & George W Bush (2009 at The White House and at The Pentagon in 2015).  They have made numerous coast to coast TV appearances including Good Morning America, Good Morning LA, The View & The Today Show.

The High Kings continue to set the bar extremely high for Irish folk bands across the world and are widely regarded to be the standard-bearer for their genre in 2020.  They are, essentially, marking out a new and bright era for Irish folk music.  Not to be missed.
