We received our tickets for The Henry Girls concert early, meaning some weeks full of impatience and anticipation. We had visited The Henry Girls’ previous concert @ the Kulturforum in Fürth on 2014-11-13 as well (The Henry Girls @ Kulturforum Fuerth). Of course, our friend Markus joined us for the fun; he had attended The Henry Girls concert in Nuremberg (2013) with us and also loves their music. After our trip to Ireland in March, Elfe was keen on visiting this concert, being a true fan of harp music.
Markus had booked a table at the Kulturforum’s restaurant – a wise decision as it is no secret that the food is fantastic, guaranteeing lots of diners. Elfe, Wolfgang and I arrived a little early, spent the time talking about the past swing concert and the upcoming event. A little while later, the door opened and in came The Henry Girls and – Markus! Karen, Lorna and Joleen spotted us immediately and chatted with us for several minutes.
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
- Falling in Love Again
- Slow Down
- Watching the Detectives
- Here Beside Me
- Early in the Morning
- The Garden Where the Praties Grow
- The Light in the Window
- The Weather
- Sweet Dreams
- O’Harlan’s Farewell to Music (instrumental, harp)
- Don’t Call Me Honey
- The Rattlin’ Bog
- So Long but Not Goodbye
As a bonus, The Henry Girls performed these songs:
- The Farmer’s Song (How Do You Know?)
- Boogie Woogie Love
Afterwards, Markus had to catch a train – some quick hugs and he was gone. I had promised Elfe a signed CD – another great opportunity to chat. We left with the promise that I’d get ‘my’ song next time.
Whenever there is an opportunity for you to visit their concert – you won’t regret it. Karen, Lorna and Joleen are awesome musicians and love to interact with the audience, including a personal chat and goodbye.

This time, The Henry Girls did not perform Dúlaman.
As some of you certainly love this version as much as I do…
