The High Kings - Decade - The Best Of CD
Marking ten years of great music, The High Kings release "Decade" - The Best of The High Kings'. The album is an 18 track collection of their most popular tracks, including five brand new recordings. It features fan favourites such as Rocky Road to Dublin, Marie's Wedding and Spancil Hill as well as brand new tracks. Their self-titled debut album quickly followed and reached an impressive No 2 in Billboard's World Music Chart. The High Kings had achieved what many had thought improbable, if not impossible: they were moving the Irish ballad tradition into the here and now, carrying along with them the steadfast older fans while simultaneously bringing it to a new audience. More was to come in 2013 with the group's third studio album, 'Friends For Life', which featured original songs among the traditional fare, and was co-produced by Sharon Shannon. This was followed by a two-year tour, culminating in a live CD & DVD release called 'Four Friends Live'. The group's fourth studio album, 'Grace & Glory', was released in 2016. 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 under-statement. They are, essentially, marking out a new and bright era for Irish folk music.
