“Janet’s soft, easy, careworn Americana style washes your troubles away. Her voice is like brandy by a fireside after a day of hill-walking in the rain. Too many people’s publicity material promises this kind of thing but, trust me, an evening in Janet’s company and the world never seems so bad.
She has performed with the likes of Nanci Griffith, Mick Hanly, Andy Irvine and Charlie McGettigan; recorded with Duffy Power, Martin Hayes, Henry McCullough and Gary Ferguson; felt at ease on stages from Vicar Street, Dublin, to the Grand Opera House, Belfast; released three albums at her own pace over the past 10 years. And every year the songs, to my ears, become yet more exquisite and the voice more beautiful. I’ve written books about great artists. I count Janet among them.” Colin Harper, Author
Janet Henry’s new album GOING HOME is her third album, but the first to be completely self-penned.
