THE HENRY GIRLS

Music |
13th June 2014

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 from touring in Europe, North America and further afield. Hailing from County Donegal, these three sisters blend classic Traditional Irish trad with a hint of Americana, and a nod to bluegrass. The girls are renowned for their fine close harmonies and musical arrangements, and have been likened to many other siblings such as The McGarrigle Sisters, The Andrews Sisters and The Everly Brothers.

They have been playing and writing together for more than a decade and Karen, Lorna and Joleen now have four albums to their credit. Their most recent ‘December Moon’, produced by Calum Malcolm (Blue Nile, Heidi Talbot) has been the release that won them most attention.

The trio of multi-instrumentalists (harp, fiddle, accordion, guitar, piano and ukulele all make an appearance) were invited as Special Guests to join the Altan & Friends show being staged on the main stage of Glasgow Royal Concert Hall at Celtic Connections. 

The Girls have attracted the attention of some of the best-known names on radio, BBC Radio 2’s legendary Bob Harris describing their music as “beautiful”. The print reviews have been strong too, all indicating that finally, their time has come, with fRoots magazine saying they were “full bodied and powerfully dynamic” while R2 (Rock ‘n’ Reel) magazine called them “a class act”.

Those fortunate enough to have seen them ‘live’ on stage will all agree with the sentiments of The Irish Times who simply described the experience as “a joy”. The sisters have toured and collaborated on various other music projects, most notably with top Cambridge, Massachusetts, singer-songwriter, Ry Cavanaugh, renowned as the man behind the legendary Session Americana phenomenon, and The Fox Hunt, from West Virginia, with whom they have recorded
