The Henry Girls

 

The only mystery is why they aren’t already huge.’
– Acoustic Magazine (UK)

We are delighted to be welcoming The Henry Girls to this years Music Under The Mountains Festival! The trio of sisters, hailing from Inishowen Co. Donegal shall perform in the Hollywood Centre on Sunday September 21st. Their current album, On Louder Words (2014) has generated great reviews both here and the other side of the Atlantic.

‘Confident, organic and under-stated, this collection will urge listeners to seek out The Henry Girls’ live shows for the full 3D experience.’
– The Irish Times

 

‘Blending Irish and American roots styles with the retro sounds of close harmony groups of the ’40s & ’50s, The Henry Girls have forged a sound of their own.
– Colm O Hare, Hot Press Magazine (IRL)

 

‘These young ladies hail from Co. Donegal, Ireland, but their songs are universal in theme though drawing on the roots of their Irish, Scottish and Americana roots. Their voices woven together form a rich canopy that is both open and airy at the same time, so tightly put together as to be virtually water repellant. Their voices are a piece that is so beautiful it grabs and holds the ear of the beholder. Their voice weave in and out of each other at times bending and shaping the ears. Without being overt, there is a distinct Celtic lilt to the voices, at times strong enough to betray their roots in the old country…A group to keep your eye out for..’
– FAME review (USA)

 

‘Latest album “Louder Than Words” is a harmony-laden delight from beginning to end.’
– Pittsburgh In Tune (USA)

The ladies have a wealth of songwriting talent, with some amazing original tracks, such as “When Will I See You Again”

 

The girls also have a couple of truly special covers under their belts, like this particular one of Elvis Costellos “Watching The Detectives”

 

This is most definitely one that is not to be missed!
