Three of Donegal’s best-known acts in Derry this weekend


THREE of Donegal’s best-known musical acts are taking to the stage in Derry this Saturday for a unique show.

In Their Thousands, The Henry Girls, and The Inishowen Gospel Choir will be collaborating for a unique night of music at An Cultúrlann in Derry.

All three acts are well-known to audiences in the north west but this is the first time they will have shared a stage together.


The Henry Girls – sisters Jolene, Karen and Lorna McLaughlin – have been delighting audiences around Ireland and further afield for years with a blend of trad, folk and roots which is framed by their distinctive harmonies.

Having recently returned from a headlining tour of Germany, they will tour Austria and Switzerland before the end of the month.

Joining them at An Cultúrlann will be In Their Thousands, a four-piece folk-rock group from north Donegal.

The band has enjoyed an exciting year that has seen their star continue to rise after they won the Hot Press/RTE 2fm, Guinness Arthur’s Day Play On The Day competition.

Their live performances have seen them marked as an act to watch out for.

The Inishowen Gospel Choir has performed with both groups before and this show will be the latest in a long list of collaborations for the Carndonagh-based singers.

The show will mark the end of what has been a busy six months for the choir which seen them perform in the Netherlands and at festivals including the Electric Picnic, Vanfastival and Earagail Arts Festival.


The three acts will perform at An Cultúrlann, Gt James’ Street, Derry, on Saturday night and doors open at 7.30pm.
Tickets £8, £6 concession and are available at the venue.
