Following the release of their latest record ‘Home from Home’, The High Kings are delighted to announce they will be back performing in the Ulster Hall on the 16 January 2022
‘Home from Home was recorded live at Concert Deck in Dublin and is a journey through classic folk songs, old and new.
Speaking about going out on tour, the band said:
“We are absolutely delighted and to finally have the opportunity to get back on tour around Ireland. It’s been a surreal time in all of our lives, and I can promise you The High Kings are ready to bring the good times back again.”
he 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. 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!
Their career has seen many highlights: in 2012 they performed for President Obama during his visit to Ireland. This led to a personal invitation from the President to perform at the 2012 White House St. Patrick’s Day celebration. They flew directly from London where they had already been the headline act for the Lord Mayor of London’s St. Patrick’s Day concert. In 2015 The High Kings were invited to the Pentagon as guests of General Martin Dempsey, then Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff. They performed alongside the US Marine Corps band marking another special occasion for the band.
2021 saw the release of Home from Home, their brand-new 11 track album. Recorded live at Concert Deck in Dublin, Home from Home is a journey through classic folk songs, old and new.
