Following their performance for St Valentine's day 2019, Two Divas and a Piano (Flo McSweeney, Carmel McCreagh and Fiachra Trench) return to the Whale Theatre on Saturday, February 15, at 8pm.
Their show takes a wry look at love and loss with songs by such composers and performers as Irving Berlin, Jacques Brel, Leonard Cohen, Duke Ellington, Melody Gardot, Mick Jagger, Lieber and Stoller, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Paul Simon, Stephen Sondheim, Tom Waits and many others.
With talent, experience and sheer guts, each song is owned by the vocalists and turned into something authentic and emotional. Behind them, Trench's sparse accompaniments are what one would expect of an arranger who has written for Phil Lynott, Paul McCartney,
Elvis Costello and many others, and who provided the string arrangement for the Pogues' classic 'Fairytale of New York'.
Tickets are €18 at whaletheatre.ie.
