About This Event

Excitement is mounting in the village of Golden as the internationally renowned Irish Ballad group
The High Kings are due to perform in concert on Friday 23 rd August.

This event is sure to be the concert of the year at the Golden GAA Centre and comes as part of the DECADE World Tour which promises a joyous trip down Memory Lane, to the music and song of yesteryear, this time performed
in a contemporary style and arrangement which still remains true to the original.

Hear their heartfelt rendition of such hits as ‘’The Rocky Road to Dublin’, ‘The Parting Glass’, ‘Marie’s Wedding’,
‘Step it out Mary’, ‘The Fields of Athenry’, ‘The Wild Rover’, ‘The Rising of the Moon’ and many more
songs we all know and love.

To say that The High Kings are charting a new course for Irish ballad music – equal parts rousing and
reflective, energetic and insightful – is an understatement. They are, essentially, marking out a new
and bright era for Irish folk music, and aiming to bring a broad demographic along for the journey.
The departure of original High King Martin Furey and the arrival of young-gun George Murphy has
brought a new hunger to the High Kings and their audiences alike. With original stalwart members
Darren Holden, Finbar Clancy and Brian Dunphy continuing to bring their unique mastery of vocals
and instruments to the table, ensuring the band remained at its highest pinnacle as they reached
The High King’s tenth anniversary.

Their latest album DECADE-BEST OF THE HIGH KINGS, was a very
special compilation celebrating a decade of outstanding songs and performances, was received with
rave reviews and record sales figures with the band again topping the Irish Album Charts and
returning to the Billboard World Music Charts once again. Here’s to the next ten years . . .

Here’s to The High Kings . . .and here’s to a fantastic night at Golden GAA Centre on Friday 23 rd August. Tickets
