Ends in a Broken Heart: The High Kings and "Galway Girl"



The High Kings bring us a Steve Earle tune for our random song for today. Formed in Dublin in 2006, The High Kings play Irish folk. They are very multi-instrumental, often playing as many as thirteen instruments during their concerts, and they are known for their close harmonies. They have self-dubbed their music "folk 'n' roll" and while they mostly concentrate on traditional Irish songs, they are also known for their arrangements of songs from other genres as exemplified by this song, Galway Girl, You can find Galway Girl on their 2014 album Friends for Life.
