signs

A poster ad for a Henry Girls concert.  We had other plans so we didn't attend.  I included a clip of them singing so you can hear a sample.  They are very popular in Donegal.

The Henry Girls are an Irish folk and roots music group. The band consists of three sisters: Karen, Lorna and Joleen McLaughlin. All three have studied music and are multi-instrumentalist, utilizing fiddles, ukulele, banjo, guitar, harp, mandolin, piano, and accordion.  The Henry Girls often sing in harmony and their sound has been described as a mix of traditional Irish folk music and Americana.  The McLaughlin sisters are from Malin in Inishowen, County Donegal, in Ulster, Ireland. They formed the band over 10 years ago and named the band after their grandfather.
