The X20 Artisan carbon fiber acoustic guitar – fit for a ‘High King’

Our Emerald Guitars ambassador, Darren Holden is back on the road with The High Kings playing his X20 Artisan in some beautiful venues across Europe.

You may recall that Darren gave us his first impressions of the X20 during the summer and since he has been able to get a feel for it before taking it on tour with the renowned Irish folk group.

The High Kings have already played several dates around the United Kingdom, Denmark and Germany on their current European tour, including London’s famous Union Chapel where Darren is pictured playing the X20 Artisan (Hat-tip to Carol Billett, Twitter @caz1957 for taking the photos). Here is also a video Darren took from the stage showing the amazing crowd on the night.

The group is doing an extensive tour of Germany before they return home for their Irish tour which will see them perform all across the country right up until the end of January. Darren said he is still ‘loving it [the X20]’ and ‘it’s getting a great reaction’ which we have certainly seen thanks to the nice tweets from some of his fans – like the photo of Darren rocking his Emerald Tee in Hamburg!

If you would like to see the High Kings live, make sure to check out their tour dates, and give them and Darren a follow on their social media sites where they post regularly! For more on the X20 Artisan go to our product page.
