Ambassador for Emerald Guitars


“Absolutely delighted to receive this stunning X20 Artisan from Sean Feeny, PR for Emerald Guitars in Donegal.

I will be honoured to play this unique and amazing carbon fibre instrument.

A great start to my birthday weekend.

Thanks Sean and Alan!”

Emerald Guitars: "We are so honoured to have such a talented performer as Darren as one of our ambassadors!"


"Proud and honoured to see the brand new official video of my becoming an ambassador for Emerald Guitars.

Huge thanks to Alastair, Sean and Alan from Emerald for reaching out to me

to make this happen."


“A little something to mark the 39th anniversary of ELVIS. Glad to sing this with my Artisan X20 acoustic from

Emerald Guitars.”


“After many requests and messages from you guys following the first 'Elvis' song I posted a few weeks ago, I've decided to upload another hotel room video. Hope you enjoy.

One of my favourite songs from Rod the Mod. This is dedicated to the wonderful High Kings road crew, who have accommodated me having my Artisan X20 Emerald guitar on the road with me. The best crew in the game!”

Loving these fantastic instruments from a superb Irish company.”

"I am completely overwhelmed and so grateful to Alistair Hay, founder of "Emerald Guitars" for yet another gift of an incredibly beautiful and unique Irish made instrument.

I've loved playing the Artisan X20 on tour and this evening Alistair and his PR man Sean Feeny presented me with the Amicus Artisan short scale. Can't wait to get accustomed with this little gem."


Emerald Guitars: “NEWS We caught up with Darren Holden from The High Kings before Christmas. The popular Irish group is touring the US again this March! Have you seen the popular Irish folk group live yet? We'd love to hear your stories!”
