The High Kings Finbarr Clancy, Darren Holden, Brian Dunphy and, the newest member, Paul O’Brien, have just released their brand new single for the festive season ‘Christmas The Way I Remember’. The single has already become a #1 hit single as it topped the iTunes Ireland Christmas songs chart on release!
‘Christmas The Way’ I remember is the quintessential sound of the festive season. In a season where music comes to the forefront, The High Kings have captured the perfect sound of Christmas. With the air of ‘Red Is The Rose’ and lyrics by High King Darren Holden, this is Christmas all wrapped up on a song.
Over the past 12 years, The High Kings have released 4 studio albums, 2 live albums and 2 DVDs. In 2017 they released a compilation album ‘Decade’ which celebrated 10 amazingly successful years together and also included 5 brand new recordings. In December the band take to the roads of Ireland and kick off a national tour in Donegal that takes them to 21 venues all over the country.
To say that The High Kings are charting a course for Irish ballad music – equal parts rousing and reflective, energetic and insightful – is an understatement. They are, essentially, marking out a new and bright era for Irish folk music.
