Donegal sisters  Karen, Lorna and Joleen are collectively known as The Henry Girls; 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, 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, fiddle, accordion, ukulele, banjo and piano.

This spring sees them release their 6th studio album, produced by Calum Malcolm (Blue Nile, Heidi Talbot), called Far Beyond The Stars.

The Henry Girls combine something of our Irish heritage with a more contemporary backdrop; imbuing it with compassion, insight and warmth. Having produced bands such as Clannad and Altan, Donegal has a reputation for having music beautiful enough to rival its awe-inspiring landscape, and The Henry Girls are part of the proof. They launched their new album Far Beyond The Stars earlier this year to great acclaim, for example The Sunday Times described it as ’astonishing’. The harmonising, lilting, melting voices imbue their music with overwhelming romanticism, although the very classic and traditional folk sound is given an edge with Americana, bluegrass and blues sounds. See them live and you will drift away with celtic harmonies, folkish melodies, and a dollop of that world-famous organic Donegal style.

‘These sisters have a sensational talent. The quality of their harmony singing goes beyond mere technique. They possess an unerring ability to blend tone and resonance in a seamless fashion’. Eamon Carr, The Evening Herald (IRL)
