The High Kings new album
Decade - Marks ten years of great music
The High Kings celebrate 10th Anniversary with new album ‘Decade – The Best of the High Kings’ out 3rd November... followed by an 18 month World Tour starting in Ireland in December.
Marking ten years of great music, The High Kings release ‘Decade – The Best of The High Kings’ on 3rd November. Decade features fan favourites such as Rocky Road to Dublin, Marie’s Wedding and Spancil Hill as well as 5 brand new recordings.
Ten years ago, The High Kings’ concert was broadcast on PBS stations across America and launched the band onto the music scene overnight.
Their self-titled debut album quickly followed and reached an impressive No 2 in Billboard’s World Music Chart. Within months the four members– Finbarr Clancy, Brian Dunphy, Martin Furey and Darren Holden – had clicked as a creative unit as well as friends and knew that they were embarking on something special.
Ten years later, The High Kings have achieved what many had thought improbable, if not impossible: moving the Irish ballad tradition into the here and now.
While Martin has sadly left the band, we are delighted to announce that Irish folk singer George Murphy will be joining The High Kings as a special guest on their forthcoming shows.
George has a remarkable, unmistakable powerhouse of a voice; his familiar yet unique and magnetic tone is clear from the first note he sings.
Celtic Collections label CEO Janine Nallen said “George is an exceptional singer and a genuine folk talent – we are delighted to have him join The High Kings for this next chapter”.
“For a 17-year-old to possess such a wildly evocative Dublin howl is extraordinary to the point of being unbelievable.” - Hot Press
The High Kings 10th Anniversary world tour follows their new album release, beginning in Ireland in December 2017.
