The High Kings

Essentially the male version of Celtic Woman, the High Kings are a mass-marketed contemporary Celtic quartet under the musical direction of David Downes of Riverdance fame. Debuted in 2008, the High Kings are a supergroup comprised of Irish natives Finbarr Clancy (born in Carrick-an-Suir, County Tipperary; formerly of the Clancy Brothers), Martin Furey (born in Dunmore East, County Waterford; formerly of the group Bohinta), Brian Dunphy (born in Dublin; formerly a cast member of Riverdance), and Darren Holden (born in County Kilkenny; formerly a cast member of Riverdance, among other Broadway productions, and a successful solo artist as well). Their debut album, The High Kings, sold very well in the United States for world music (peaking at number 150 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart and number two on the world music albums chart), thanks in significant part to a PBS television special (also released on DVD) broadcast nationally in commemoration of the St. Patrick's Day holiday. The High Kings subsequently toured their homeland. ~ Jason Birchmeier

The male version of Celtic Women!?!?!? Not even close! These guys decidedly more traditional/ G a e l i c than Celtic women could ever be! Celtic Women is a watered down version of highland music!

I've seen The High Kings live several times. I agree way better than the over produced Celtic Woman

The High Kings are a great mix of Irish talent and to experience their production is pure enjoyment. From Martin's versatility with the tin Whistle and string instruments to Brian's master of the Bodhran and Darren's talent on the keyboard and accordion and finally Finbar's robust musical numbers, their talent shines in all their songs.

I am from the other side of the world...Puer t o Rico to be exact and Gaelic Storm and The High Kings have hooked me on Celtic folk music...I love The Parting Glass and The Wild Rover live version by the High Kings.

The High Kings is not even close to the male version of Celtic Woman. Celtic Woman is a group who does a mix of Celtic music, contemporary songs, and random movie songs. The High Kings are a group or more or less to purely Irish/Scotti s h folk music. Their newest album is a little more Celtic Woman-esque, but still much more Irish. Basically, the High Kings are way cooler.

While they may have started as essentially the male version of Celtic Woman they certainly haven't stayed that way. A change in management permitted them to play more to their own style and tastes. Gone are the heavily choreographe d movements and coordinated costumes. While they remain true to the folk genre, they've added their own flavor to the old songs and have released new songs (their own writing) as well. These changes have allowed their personalitie s and immense talent to finally show.

I didn't really listen to Irish folk, but The High Kings have made me become sort of addicted. Funny, I talked about Celtic Women and description mentions they are like a male version.

Love this music! Takes me back to the days when I was courting the lovely lass who would become my wife. She turned me on to Celtic music, and we have been singing together ever since.

I always get so into the music when it comes to The High Kings. As if nothing exists except for the music, and the motion inside my soul. I'm mostly Irish and this is the reason it's the favorite part of my heritage. The High Kings are my favorite, but The Dubliners are a close second. GO IRELAND
