The High Kings are Finbarr Clancy, Darren Holden, and Brian Dunphy. Back in June 2007, they were all invited to join a brand new Irish band as three of the four founder members of the High Kings, with Martin Furey. It had been years since the likes of The Clancy Brothers and the Dubliners had their heyday, and they all felt the time was right for a new band to come along and re-energise the traditional Irish songs for a new generation of Irish music lovers. As they took to the rehearsal studio for the first time, it didn’t take long for them to realise that the way their four unique voices blended together was the start of something special. 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 bearers for the genre in 2019. After 11 years at the top of their game, they are still selling out venues around the world to an ever growing army of loyal fans. Long may they reign.
