Welcome to this website about Toronto band The Henrys. We’ve been writing, performing and recording original music since 1990. Seven albums (and two related), concerts at The Bottom Line (NYC), the North Sea Festival (The Hague), SXSW, etc. The band uses some oddball instruments (kona and other acoustic and electric steel guitars, pump organ, conch shell …) to define the sonic areas of our original compositions, which don’t fall easily in any genre, but draw on a variety. The latest recording, Paydirt, is nominated for a ‘Pushing the Boundaries’ Canadian Folk Music Award 2021, and was chosen by British journalist Richard Williams as one of the best releases of 2020.
