In a city where many bands strive to adapt the genre of traditional Newfoundland music with a more contemporary vibe, I know of no other new group that has succeeded to the degree of The Rolling Kings.
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.
The band's premier album, Raise a Glass, received four nominations at the 2013 MusicNL Awards and the band walked away with the 2013 Fans’ Choice Album of the Year. Then, in 2014, Raise a Glass was nominated for an ECMA for Traditional Group Recording of the Year.
New Year's Eve!
