If you have friends or relations on America’s East Coast, spread the word, The Henry Girls are on their way!
The Girls - Karen, Lorna, and Jolene ‘Henry’ McLaughlin - are kicking off their St Patrick’s week tour in Massachusetts, with a ‘St Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn’ at the Sanders Theatre and Hanover Theatre, March 13-15.
They’ll be joined by the wonderful Brian O Donovan and other artists for these gigs. Their old friend and musical colleague Ry Cavanaugh will be joining the at most of the concerts as well.
Following the Massachusetts concerts, The Henry Girls will make their debut at four venues.
First up is The Katharine Hepburn Arts Centre in Old Saybrook, Connecticut on St Patrick’s Day itself.
From there, it’s Barbes in Brooklyn on March 18, followed by the Avalon Theatre in Easton, Maryland on the 19th, then Burlap and Bean in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.
The whirlwind tour winds up with a fitting visit to Drew University Concert Hall in Madison, New Jersey on March 21.
The Henry Girls played at the opening night of Drew University’s Transatlantic Connections Conference in Bundoran last year and this year.
If, for some reason, you have not yet seen or heard The Henry Girls, here’s what some of the critics have been saying about them.
‘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.’ - Hot Press Magazine (IRL)
‘Louder Than Words is a revelation on numerous fronts...The album ebbs and flows with a quiet confidence and the musicianship is of the highest order. And the harmonies? They float from the speakers like objects in zero gravity, tumbling slowly through the ether before enveloping you in a warm blanket of pitch perfect wonderful.’ - Folk Radio UK
‘Louder Than Words is subtle and nuanced, imbued with swelling harmonies, fragile melodies, and songs of quiet persuasion. Louder Than Words - clearly speaks volumes.’ - Country Standard Time (USA)
