Malin music trio The Henry Girls are about to go in a new direction with a new album launching this February.
This time they are taking inspiration from one of the best jazz vocal groups of all time – the Boswell Sisters.
The Boswell Sisters were an American vocal jazz trio who broke boundaries with their intricate harmonies and rhythmic experimentation.
Last summer The Henry Girls tapped into their own penchant for harmonising to record a concert in a circus tent at the Earagail Arts Festival. That hit concert was turned into a 16 track live album, which will be launched on 7th February in An Grianan Theatre.
In this concert you will hear popular songs from the 1920s & 1930s (Heebie Jeebies, St. Louis Blues, Mood Indigo) as well as some rarities.
The Henry Girls – Karen, Lorna and Joleen McLaughlin – have assembled a ten-piece band for the show which includes a brass and reed section, drums, double bass, guitar, piano and of course close three-part harmonies.
Not only will the night be a musical treat, but the audience can expect to see some surprise circus entertainment too!
