The Henry Girls
Malin, County Donegal
The Henry Girls are three sisters from Co.Donegal, Ireland. They were brought up by music loving parents who introduced them to an eclectic array of sounds such as The Everly Brothers, The Bothy Band, The Beatles, Johnny Cash and Ella Fitzgerald as well being surrounded by traditional Irish music. In their own music, they have a unique rootsy sound which blends their native traditional Irish folk music with hints of americana, bluegrass and blues. They are renowned for their fine close harmonies and musical arrangements, and have been likened to such great musical acts as Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Dixie Chicks and The Be Good Tanyas. They write songs that are tuneful, catchy, and warm. Their repertoire is scattered with old and new and their style reflects many influences and tastes.
They have been playing music together since childhood but decided to go professional in 2010 and since then have become one of the most talked about folk/roots acts to come out of Ireland, now captivating audiences on worldwide stages and earning rapturous encores and standing ovations wherever they play. They are natural performers and are known for their warm personalities, onstage and off. They are developing an international profile and in 2012, they toured in Germany, America, Ireland and Scotland, as well as performances in Sweden. In 2013, they will tour in Austria, Germany, Ireland, England and Scotland and have performances lined up in Utrecht too.
In 2011, they appeared as guest backing vocalists on Mary Black’s new album ‘Stories from the Steeples’ and one of the songs they appear on is a duet with the fabulous Imelda May.
