 The Whistling Girl
The acclaimed Irish duo of singer / actress Honor Heffernan and composer/ keyboard player Trevor Knight (Auto Da Fe), present their new Cabaret/Speakeasy-style 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. Audiences can expect a darkly sardonic evening’s entertainment in which the American wit and critic’s words are given a sonic face-lift fusing ‘dirty’-cabaret, electronic-vaudeville, rock and jazz.  With a lineup of highly renowned Irish musicians the atmosphere for a spellbinding evening of music with a theatrical element is brought to life. Garvan Gallagher bass, Tom Jamieson drums, Ed Deane electric guitar, Ciaran Wilde saxophones, Bill Blackmore / Ray Martin horns.

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

(Dorothy Parker)

Tickets €14/€12  Running Time – Ihr 20 mins

Culture Night - Georgian Clothing, Customs, and Material Culture presented by Melissa Shiels
Costume Historian and Heritage Expert, Melissa Shiels, will present an assortment of items and clothing ranging from 1775 to 1795 - the year of Jane Austen's birth to the time she wrote her first novella.  Learn about a day in the life of an upper class Georgian woman; come see the 'weird and wonderful' cosmetics and beauty regimes that Georgian ladies followed and the rapidly changing fashions they were devoted to. Melissa will demonstrate how some everyday objects were used and how they were a part of a greater shift in society.
