The High Kings tour date
Previously named Best Folk Act at Ireland’s Music Awards, The High Kings will headline Hooley in the Heather festival on June 14, 2013. Formed in Dublin in 2008, the renowned Irish ballad group, consisting of Darren Holden, Brian Dunphy, Finbarr Clancy, and Martin Furey, has toured Ireland, Great Britain, parts of Europe and the United States.
Over the past five years, The High Kings’ popularity has rocketed, driven by their distinctive vocal harmonies and individual abilities as musicians. They’ve been described as "the most exciting Irish ballad group to emerge since The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem".
All four members of The High Kings come from accomplished musical pedigrees. Martin Furey is the son of famous Irish artist Finbar Furey, Finbarr Clancy, son of Bobby Clancy has previously toured with The Clancy Brothers, and both Darren Holden and Brian Dunphy starred in ‘Riverdance - The Show’ on Broadway.
