Following the death of his uncle, Liam Clancy, Finbarr said that while it felt like the end of an era for Irish music, The High Kings were determined to carry on the tradition. He also admitted that they had big shoes to fill. The High Kings are named after the legendary rulers of ancient Ireland The final member of the band, Darren Holden, is a successful Broadway star.
