Overview

The High Kings

In the tradition of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, the High Kings deliver classic Irish folk songs with a modern twist, adding sparkling rhythms and intricate harmonies. The quartet's self-titled debut offers a range of moods, from the rousing "Rocky Road to Dublin" to the haunting "The Parting Glass" and the cheerful "The Wild Rover." Their PBS special aired in March 2008.

This Irish group brings a great mixture of songs to satisfy any lover of the Holy Ground. There are songs such as The Wild Rover that my friends and I sang in Irish neighborhood bars as young people. There is a song called the Auld Triangle that reminds me of stories my grandfather told me about the troubles It is just great stuff...UP...!

Even if you've never experienced this genre of music, you will surely appreciate the talents and vocal excellence of The High Kings. My tastes normally run from R&B to singer-songwriter to alternative rock. What a world of music these artists have opened up for this American and I hope for you, as well. Long live The High Kings of Ireland!

These guys are really outstanding. Their voices are so beautifully balanced that at times you'll swear you're listening to more than four voices. "The Auld Triangle" is an example of a song who's lyrics I don't relate to or much care for, but the A Cappella is so amazing that I can't help but listen to it over and over. If you're looking for a modern yet refined take on traditional Irish folk music that's performed brilliantly, you won't do any better than this.
