The Ark Dublin

2016 updated information coming soon…

The Ark presents The Henry Girls in a festive music show celebrating some of the things we love to do and see when the world turns white.

“Walking through Winterland, what do you see?
Walking through Winterland, what could it be?”

Follow the heavenly harmonies of The Henry Girls into an enchanting world of winter. From sparkling icicles to wolves in the forest, the joy of sledding at high speed or the wonder of the Aurora Borealis on a frosty night, discover the magic and mysteries of the festive season in a music performance made for children.

And just what did make those tracks in the snow? Find out as the band’s playful humour and trademark folk and trad melodies bring to life some of the things that we love to do and see when the world turns white.

Tracks in the Snow has been commissioned and produced by The Ark as we continue to work with artists to create high-quality live music experiences crafted especially for young audiences.
