The Henry Girls
One of the most talked about folk/roots acts to emerge from Ireland in the last decade, The Henry Girls have, within just a few short years, developed a vast international following through extensive touring throughout Europe, North America and further afield.
Hailing from the picturesque village of Malin in the Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal, these three sisters give a nod to bluegrass whilst blending classic Irish traditions with a hint of Americana. Karen, Lorna and Joleen McLaughlin are renowned for their fine close harmonies and musical arrangements, and have been likened to such other harmonising siblings as The McGarrigle Sisters, The Andrew Sisters and The Everly Brothers.
Having been playing and writing together for more than a decade, the trio of multi-instrumentalists - harp, guitar, fiddle, accordion, guitar, piano and ukulele all make an appearance alongside their radiantly harmonised vocals - now have four albums to their name; their most recent being December Moon, bringing with it their widest critical acclaim yet.
