The Henry Girls
Genre: Celtic

"...somewhere along the way the girls have developed an innate musical ability that defies belief." - InDublin (IRL)

The Henry Girls are three sisters from Co.Donegal, Ireland. Their music is diverse and eclectic with a unique rootsy sound that blends their native traditional Irish folk music with hints of Americana, bluegrass and blues. They are renowned for their fine close harmonies and musical arrangements, and have been likened to such great musical acts as Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Dixie Chicks and The Be Good Tanyas. As one of the most talked about folk/roots acts from Ireland, they have captivated audiences on worldwide stages throughout Germany, America, Sweden, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Austria and the UK.


Kobo Town
Genre: World

Founded and fronted by emigre Trinidadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town's music has been variously described as "an intoxicating blend of lilting calypsonian wit, dancehall reggae and trombone-heavy brass" (Guardian) and a "unique, transnational composite of rhythm, poetry and activist journalism".(Exclaim!) The JUNO-nominated group has brought their distinct calypso-inspired sound to audiences across the world, delivering an indomitable energy that has earned them a considerable following far beyond the niche of world music enthusiasts and calypso fans.
