Direct from Dublin, Irish Folk Superstars The High Kings are making their debut at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, July 20, 2022 at 8pm!

The band will bring their contemporary adaptation of traditional Irish music, Celtic music, and original compositions to the stage as part of the Pepsi Rock Series Driven by North American Motor Car and the HamletHub World Music Series. The High Kings are one of Ireland's most famous pop folk groups and have quickly become a favorite throughout the United States and across Europe, touring the countries annually. With consistently sold out shows at each venue and country they visit, be sure to reserve your tickets now to enjoy a concert to remember at The Ridgefield Playhouse! Media sponsor for the event is 90.7fm WFUV.

Considered the Irish Folk Band of the 21st Century, the group consists of members Finbarr Clancy, Darren Holden, Brian Dunphy and Paul O' Brien. Between the four men, the group plays thirteen instruments, including traditional Irish instruments such as the bodhran drum.

The High Kings have released nine albums and accumulated a dedicated fan base in Ireland and the United States. Their self-titled debut album reached #2 on the World Billboard Music Chart. In 2021, they released their brand-new 11 track album, Home from Home, which features classic folk songs from around the world at some of the favorite places The High Kings have toured.

Bringing a new sound to traditional Irish Classics, while still holding Irish history and style in their voices, The High Kings have had many high points in their career including headlining for the Lord Mayor of London's St. Patrick's Day Concert, performing at the U.S. Pentagon in 2015 alongside the U.S. Marine Corps Band, performing for President Obama in Ireland and then getting a personal invitation from him to perform at the 2012 White House St. Patrick's Day Celebration.
