We are a female trio of singing musicians with an extensive repertoire of Irish music with the influence of American Folk groups and amazing vocal harmonies! We can fill your ceremony or event with angelic sacred music or Irish ballads. And we can easily transition into cocktail hours and parties with fun Celtic dancing and drinking songs!
We are happy to take requests too... even for *gasp* non-Irish music. 😉🍀

These young artist are so talented with their singing and instument playing. They all have great stage presence and personalities. We can not wait to have The Galway Girls back at Hedgerow.
We had the Galway Girls perform for St Patrick's Day/Irish Weekend events, they put on a fantastic show of traditional celtic music. Lively, fun and definitely got the crowd singing and clapping along.
