We had bought our tickets immediately after receiving The Henry Girls newsletter with the exciting news that they were going to be @ the Kulturforum in Fürth on 2014-11-13. Of course, our friend Markus was invited. He had attended The Henry Girls concert in Nuremberg (2013) with us and also loves their music.
Markus, Wolfgang and I met at the Kulturforum’s restaurant to grab a bite. We got one of the last tables and ordered. A little while later, the door opened and in came – The Henry Girls! We chatted for several minutes. They enjoyed their vegetarian dishes as much as we did. Markus was also very pleased with his non-vegetarian choice. 😉
The concert started on time, briefly introduced by the organiser.
We listened to…
- December Moon
- Ol’ Cook Pot
- Sing My Sister Down
- Couldn’t Ask For More
- Reason to Believe
- The Light in the Window
- Actions Speak Louder Than Words
- O’Harlan’s Farewell to Music (instrumental)
- Early in the Morning
- Here Beside Me
During the break, I treated myself to The Henry Girls album ‘Louder Than Words‘ – and had it signed.
And again, I seized the opportunity for a chat. Among others, I told Karen McLaughlin how much I admire their version of the traditional Gaelic song ‘Dúlaman‘.
- The Weather
- Rain & Snow
- Sweet Dreams
- Stop Saying Forever
- Dúlaman (song only, and the picture)
- Watching the Detectives
- When the Dark Clouds Fall
- Boogie Woogie Love
- How Do You Know?
- So Long but Not Goodbye
As a bonus, The Henry Girls performed this song:
- The Parting Glass
Afterwards we chatted a little more, Markus and I finally went downstairs. Wolfgang was still talking to Joleen. When he joined us some minutes later, he had a very special surprise for me: World’s greatest husband had convinced the organiser to give him the tour poster from the entrance hall. Then, he had Karen, Lorna and Joleen McLaughlin sign the tour poster for me!
