      The High Kings (traditional Celtic music)

      Irish folk band The High Kings will perform at Gesa Power House Theatre in Walla Walla on Friday, March 27, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.

      The High Kings are Finbarr Clancy, Darren Holden, Brian Dunphy and newest member Paul O’ Brien. The band formed in 2007 when Brian, Darren, Finbarr and former member Martin Furey were asked to join a brand new Irish ballad group by David Kavanagh after he had noticed a gap in the market for a band specializing in traditional Irish music.

      It didn’t take long during their first studio rehearsal for them to realize that the way their individual voices blended together, they were onto something special. The High Kings play 13 instruments between them creating the unique sound and atmosphere that they still showcase to this day.

      Their self-titled debut album reached number two on the Billboard World Music chart, and in 2009, The High Kings played five consecutive sold out shows in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and licensed their second studio album "Memory Lane" to Universal Music Ireland - signifying the fast trajectory that the band had taken in their short lifespan. "Memory Lane" went platinum only four months after its release.

      Over the past 12 years The High Kings have toured frequently, and released four studio albums, two live albums and two DVDs. In 2017, they released a compilation album "Decade" which celebrated 10 amazingly successful years together and also included five brand new recordings.

      In 2012 they performed for President Obama in Moneygall, this led to a personal invitation from the president to perform at the 2012 White House St. Patrick’s Day celebration. They flew directly from London where they had already been the headline act for the Lord Mayor of London’s St. Patrick’s Day concert. In 2015 The High Kings were invited to the Pentagon as guests of General Martin Dempsey, who is the Chairman of the The Joint Chiefs of Staff. They performed alongside the US Marine Corps band marking another special occasion for the band.

      The High Kings set the bar extremely high for Irish Folk bands across the world and are widely regarded to be at the forefront of the genre. The High Kings continue to perform to sold out venues across the globe to their ever-growing army of loyal fans that span generations.
