The Henry Girls are sisters Karen, Lorna and Joleen McLaughlin from Donegal in Ireland. They named their trio for their grandfather, and have been making music and touring together since 2003. All three sisters have studied music and are well versed in traditional Irish music, which they blend with elements of country, bluegrass, world and americana. These three talented musicians are multi-instrumentalists, playing fiddle, ukulele, banjo, guitar, mandolin and piano, and they have at their command voices which meld into multiple harmonies of exquisite quality. We hear the purest Irish traditional tones and fine bluegrass phrasing. The Henry Girls’ first album, Between Us, came in 2003. Their latest, Far Beyond The Stars, from 2017, has been highly praised in the international media. The trio has seen great success in USA, where they tour frequently. The Henry Girls have worked with Dónal Lunny and Moya Brennan and are featured on Mary Black’s album Stories from the Steeples. Their only Danish festival concert in 2022.
