Ireland's platinum-selling "Folk Band of the Year" the High Kings is comprised of Darren Holden (star of the Broadway hit show by Billy Joel Movin' Out), Finbarr Clancy (of the well-known Clancy family), Martin Furey (son of the "prince of pipers" Finbar Furey) and Brian Dunphy (son of showband legend Sean Dunphy).

A quartet of accomplished musical pedigrees, the band first exploded onto the Irish folk music scene in 2008 with their self-titled CD and DVD and was introduced to American audiences on Public Television. They have sold out hundreds of shows in Ireland and the US, made numerous TV appearances, and achieved platinum status in Ireland with both albums.
