Finbarr Clancy, Brian Dunphy, Martin Furey & Darren Holden – renowned vocalists and musicians – have come together to create the most exciting Irish ballad group to emerge since The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem electrified the worldwide folk revival of the 1960s.
The band will play at the Mount Errigal Hotel on Saturday, December 28 – the perfect lift after the turkey!
Carrying on the tradition of great Irish music, creating exciting modern songs in the folk idiom and incorporating some of the classic ballad repertoire from the past.
The highly acclaimed musical Director David Downes, (musical director of Celtic Woman) brings intricate harmonies and driving rhythms to The High Kings songbook, giving them freshness and sparkle that is modern and exciting, without ever sacrificing the traditional melodies and lyrics, which made them so attractive in the first instance.
The songs themselves reflect a wide range of moods, the rousing “Rocky Road To Dublin,” the haunting strains of “The Parting Glass,” the irresistible “The Wild Rover” and the stunning “Fields of Glory”. The four part harmonies will be backed by a band on the Irish tour.
Tickets are available from the Mount Errigal Hotel.
