Article first published as music review on blogcritics - From County Donegal, The Henry Girls (Karen, Lorna and Joleen McLaughlin) have found a way to personalize their music with crystalline vocals, lilting melodies and eclectic influences. Produced by Calum Malcolm, December Moon also offers relaxed sophistication in its arrangements. Karen plays fiddle, viola, guitar, banjo and even some ukulele. Joleen is a harper, but she also adds a little mandolin and piano to the mix. Lorna's instrumental contributions are more understated, with some piano, accordion and chimes on a few tracks. All three women have music degrees, teach regularly, and have toured for years. Recently, they appeared as backing vocalists on Mary Black`s Stories from the Steeples.

With the exception of four tracks, all songs on December Moon were written by The Henry Girls. All lyrics are on their website. We hear three voices emerge with irresistible clarity and emotion. Opening with "Sing My Sister Down," they establish a spiritually-infused groove even though the story is a sad one of personal travail and retribution. "December Moon" has a Cajun feeling with synthesized sounds of xylophone and triangle as the girls sing of burning hearts unfulfilled. A one-minute reprisal of the tune, in the form of "Moonstruck," evokes a worldly African beat featuring only harp, kora and percussion. Some of The Henry Girls' earthy songs like the optimistic "Stop Saying Forever" and "When Will I See You Again?" tread territory between mellow and trendy. The stage for "Sweet Dreams" is set as "night time comes around and peaceful melodies will play.

I'm afraid this won't be a popular view, but I'm not that keen on this album. It's pleasant-sounding and decently performed and produced but I got tired of it fairly quickly, probably because I don't think there's much to it besides a nice sound.

I like the idea of a mix of genres, The Henry Girls can certainly sing and generate good, rich harmonies and I'll listen to anything which features a cover of Elvis Costello's great Watching The Detectives (which is why I tried this). However, for all its eclectic mix and the odd adventurous choice of song, what we end up with is rather a bland pop album with an amiable overall effect but - a bit like the character in Watching The Detectives who can't be wounded - it's got little in the way of real heart.

I'm sorry to be critical, but for all its pleasant surface, I don't think this adds up to all that much musically and I can only give it a lukewarm recommendation.

This is a delightful album.
These very talented sisters from Donegal sing great harmonies and play multiple instruments including fiddle, harp, piano, guitar, mandolin and bodhran among others.
They've been around for a few years, but I only discovered them recently supporting Cara Dillon on tour and enjoyed every minute of their performance.
Initially, they give the impression that they are going to play traditional Irish music, but this is quite misleading. While they do play some traditional material, including the odd jig and reel, they sing many of their own compositions, which I would describe as contemporary folk in a similar vein to Cara Dillon, but they also embrace a range of other styles including Americana e.g. songs by the Andrews Sisters and on this album they even give their own unique take on Watching the Detectives by Elvis Costello.
I'm a big fan of artists who mix traditional and contemporary folk, such as Cara Dillon, The Corrs and Fairport Convention. If you have similar leanings, you will probably enjoy this album.

I bought this CD after hearing the first track, "Sing My Sister Down". Unfortunately, much of the remainder of the CD is very lightweight and fails to rise to the level of the first track.
