THE WHISTLING GIRL

THE WHISTLING GIRL

Acclaimed Irish duo of singer / actress Honor Heffernan and composer/ keyboard player Trevor Knight (Auto Da Fe), present their new cabaret show, ‘The Whistling Girl’.

The original and unique music composed by Trevor transforms the poems of Dorothy Parker into songs, using her witty, droll and sometimes heart–rending lyrics.

With a line–up of highly renowned Irish musicians they will create a spell–binding theatrical evening of music featuring Garvan Gallagher (bass), Tom Jamieson (drums), Ed Deane (electric guitar), Ciaran Wilde (saxophone & clarinet) and Bill Blackmore (trumpet).

Each of the songs create individual tableaux or dream moments from Parker’s psyche, conjuring up images from her tempestuous life of outrageous celebrity, as founding member of the notorious Algonquin set in New York, and as civil rights activist in America and Spain during the Spanish Civil War. https://youtu.be/p18we0Tyyoc

“I shall stay the way I am, because I do not give a damn!” (Dorothy Parker)
