The High Kings

Hailed as the most exciting Irish ballad group to emerge since The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem electrified the worldwide folk revival of the Sixties, the band has seen its popularity skyrocket with sell-out tours of Ireland and America.

The multi-platinum selling High Kings - Finbarr Clancy, Brian Dunphy, Martin Furey & Darren Holden - have been voted Ireland's folk band of the year for many successive years. As the true heirs of Ireland's folk heritage, with hits including On The One Road, they play 13 instruments between them and their singing is especially noted for its close harmonies.

The High Kings at Millennium Forum, Londonderry. Saturday, January 2, 8.30pm
