Multi-instrumentalists The Kings of Connaught grew up in the West of Ireland, steeped in the tradition of Irish music and features Liam O’Grady, Mark Costello, Macdara Connolly, Thomas Ryan, and Michael Tully. As well as garnering peer regard, the band’s talent and youth appeal have caught the eye of the industry both at home and abroad.
Now under new management, this talented Ballad Group are capturing the attention of young audiences and broadening the fan base for traditional Irish folk music with seemingly effortless ease. The Kings of Connaught have taken up the mantle of keeping alive our great heritage and culture of Irish Ballads and have been described by critics as “exciting young balladeers who sing with a rawness and emotion that is comparable only to the singing of The Dubliners".
To date, the group have released two albums which were very well received. Their single "The Rocky Road to Dublin" and their brand new single "Right All Right" are taken from their highly anticipated forthcoming album.
