The Henry Girls - In Concert
Having just returned from an 11-date tour of United States, the Henry Girls are fast becoming one of the most talked about folk/roots acts to come out of Ireland in the last decade , and within a few years have developed a growing international profile in Europe, North America and further afield.
The Henry Girls are sisters , Karen, Lorna and Joleen hailing from the picturesque village of Malin in the Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal, they have a unique sound which blends classic Traditional Irish Folk music with a hint of Americana, a nod to bluegrass and many more besides.
Nurtured musically by their Celtic roots, their sound is not bound by them. They have found a way to personalise their music and steeped as they are in tradition they successfully nourish the seeds of old with a bright, refreshing approach. They have a knack for creating authentic original material rich in traditional values. Their tight three part harmonies are matched by soulful musicianship across a range of instruments including harp, viola,mandolin, fiddle, piano, accordion, ukulele and banjo.
The Henry Girls are renowned for their fine close harmonies and musical arrangements, and have been likened to many other harmonising siblings such as The McGarrigle Sisters, The Andrews Sisters and The Everly Brothers.
Their sound also reflects the influences of such great musical acts as Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Dixie Chicks, The Be Good Tanyas, The Indigo Girls, Alison Krauss, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Tom Waits and many more
The talented Donegal natives have been playing and writing music together for more than a decade and Karen, Lorna and Joleen now have four albums to their credit. Their most recently released album in August 2011, ‘December Moon’ was produced by Calum Malcolm (Blue Nile, Heidi Talbot) and features many of the North West’s finest musicians including Ted Ponsonby, Nicky Scott, and Liam Bradley.They write songs that are soulful and evocative with a universal appeal. The Henry Girls will capture the hearts and minds of fans of every style and genre of music. Their repertoire includes rediscovered treasures and original songs which are instant classics.
