“THE WHISTLING GIRL”
The acclaimed Irish duo of singer/actress Honor Heffernan ( Louis Stewart, Neil Jordan’s “Angel”), and composer/keyboard player Trevor Knight (Auto da Fé) present their Cabaret/Speakeasy-style show, “The Whistling Girl”, creating a spellbinding alternative musical extravaganza of song and spoken word based on the lyrics of American wit and feminist icon Dorothy Parker. The original and unique music composed by Trevor transforms the poems of Parker into songs, using her witty, droll and sometimes heart rending lyrics.
This wonderful evening of music with a theatrical element will be presented at The High Tide Club with a line-up of Honor (vocals), Trevor (keyboards) and their long term friend and collaborator Ed Deane (electric guitar).
To date they have performed sell out shows at the Irish Arts Centre in New York in November 2017, completed 2 successful tours of Ireland, including an Arts Council funded tour in Sept/October 2017, plus shows at The Belgrade Irish Festival, Serbia, Cathedral Quarter Festival Belfast and the Cork Jazz Festival.
The new album “The Whistling Girl”, the culmination of two and a half years work between vocalist Honor Heffernan and composer/producer Trevor Knight, is now available at Tower Records, Dublin and on Bandcamp at for download.
“Sometimes a role comes along that allows a performer to weave all the strands of their artistry into one darkly thrilling tapestry; Honor Heffernan has found such a role in The Whistling Girl; a daring production that uses music, song and elements of theatre to celebrate the life of the legendary wit and writer, Dorothy Parker”
Billy O’Hanluain Writer, contributor to Arts Show, Arena and the View (RTE)
“…as fresh and original a collection of songs as you’ll hear this year…New York critics raved when the show debuted there last month…” **** Irish Times (Review CD)
“I thoroughly enjoyed this evening with Dorothy Parker (the excellent Honor Heffernan) and her musicians’ “Vicious Circle” of band members. You will too.”
