The Henry Girls with Guests Saturday 18th February 2012 8pm

The Henry Girls are fast becoming one of the most talked about folk/roots acts to come out of the North West of Ireland in the last decade. They are now also developing an international reputation performing overseas, including the US. 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 in between.

They 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..

The band has been playing and touring nationally and internationally for many years and have worked and collaborated with Irish and International acts such as Donal Lunny, Mary Black, Liam O'Maonlai, Moya Brennan, Larry John McNally, Jennifer Kimball; Session Americana, The Fox Hunt.

'What a revelation, The Henry Girls have finally found their voice and what a happy voice it is.....their original songs have the potential to have a very long life beyond the album. December Moon the title track could be the Galway Girl of 2012'
- Sean Laffey. Irish Music Magazine, 2011
