The Rolling Kings, a five-piece Celtic Rock ensemble, took its name from the lyrics of the old shanty, “South Australia”. Hailing from St. John’s, the band draws influence from the roots music of Newfoundland and Ireland, but also from rock, folk, and countless other genres when writing and arranging their songs.
The group’s high energy, distinguishable style has made the lads a staple of the local live scene on the stages of George Street, at festivals, charity events, private functions and conferences, and pretty much anywhere that will have them.
Raise a Glass, the premier album from the band, is a mix of original tunes and freshly mixed Celtic classics from Ireland and Newfoundland. The album is a fun, frenetic, and engaging representation of what you may experience at one of their live shows.
The Rolling Kings hope that the fun, excitement, and effort that went into making this album is evident on the tracks, as they want to share it all with the listeners.
