Overview

Memory Lane

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.

On their new album Memory Lane, the High Kings showcase their incredible versatility and skills as multi-instrumentalists, playing 13 instruments between the four of them, bring a rousing acoustic flavor to brand new songs as well as some old favorites. Memory Lane captures the ensemble's energetic sound of "folk-n-roll," serving up laughter, good times, and even the occasional sing-a-long. From the Label

I loved the first album, still do, but this is MUCH better. Some songs are exciting ones you can't help singing along with or dancing to. Others are slower and more traditional, but just as enjoyable. If you like Celtic Thunder or Celtic Woman than I'm sure you will like this.
