About The Henry Girls:
The Henry Girls are three sisters from Co. Donegal. Their music is infused with the rich cultural heritage of their native county but with a transatlantic flavour.
Their shimmering harmonies and delicate musicianship have been revered since their early days but in the last number of years they have been renowned for their songwriting skills also. They have successfully learned to interweave their traditional roots with contemporary elements, earning them both commercial success and spectacular critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. They are renowned for their captivating, heartwarming and often moving live performances. Those fortunate enough to have seen them perform live onstage will all agree with the sentiments of The Irish Times who simply described the experience as ‘a joy’.
The sisters have toured and collaborated on various other music projects, most notably Mary Black, Imelda May, Clannad, Sharon Shannon, The Hothouse Flowers, Donal Lunny, Altan and Dervish. They were nominated for an IFTA for Best Original Score on award-winning children’s film ʻA Shine of Rainbows’.
