with special guests
_ Main Venue _
The Henry Girls have announced their biggest headline Dublin show to date. Fresh from a three week tour of Germany and a week in the Netherlands, the sisters will play at Whelan’s on Friday May 13th.
They will be joined by very special guests on the night.
The night in Whelan’s marks the release of their brand new EP.
‘It’s absolutely gorgeous. This album has been on constant repeat on my home system’ Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
‘Get ready to listen, folks, because this is something special’ Music News Nashville
‘Sensational’ The Evening Herald
The Henry Girls are three sisters from Co. Donegal. Their music is infused with the rich cultural heritage of their native Donegal but with a transatlantic flavour. Over the last number of years they have become one of the finest Irish exponents of folk/roots music.
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 song writing 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 formed the band in the early noughties but performed mostly in the North West of Ireland at that time but it has been since the release of their highly acclaimed 2011 album December Moon, which was produced by the highly acclaimed Calum Malcolm (The Blue Nile, Heidi Talbot) that things have really started to take off internationally. Since then they have toured extensively in Europe and America and also went on to record another album with Malcolm, their 2014 album Louder Than Words.
The print reviews have been strong too, all indicating that finally, their time has come, with fRoots magazine describing their music as ‘full bodied and powerfully dynamic’ while Music News Nashville proclaimed ‘get ready to listen, folks, because this is something special’.
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. The Henry Girls are renowned for their captivating, heart-warming and often moving live performances. Those fortunate enough to have seen them ‘live’ on stage will all agree with the sentiments of The Irish Times who simply described the experience as ‘a joy’.
