The High Kings, often referred to as ‘the true heirs of Ireland’s folk heritage’, have just announced the Fall Schedule for their ‘Grace & Glory Tour’ which includes 9 new shows in Atlantic Canada. Following their sold out show at The Holy Heart Theatre in St. John’s, NF in October 2016, The High Kings have again partnered with Unicorn Promotions for the most extensive run of Canadian shows in their history.
The High Kings live shows are legendary across the world, enjoyed by millions of music fans over their 9 year career. Their unique brand of high-octane balladry and folk has won them numerous accolades and the new studio album, Grace & Glory continues that tradition. In it’s first week of release the album went to #1 in the Irish Independent Album Charts and received widespread critical acclaim, and charted in the Top 10 in the USA, Germany and the UK.
The ‘Grace & Glory Tour’ features songs from the new album as well as many fan favourites from their catalogue.
Speaking of the announcement, Finbarr Clancy said “Since the passing of The Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners, we have become the bearers of the torch, bringing the songs and traditions of Ireland to a new global audience. We relish this challenge and are truly honoured to be representing our generation. The High Kings will strive to deliver perfection wherever we go, and we are very much looking forward to seeing our Canadian fans, old and new, on our forthcoming tour dates in 2017”
