Two Divas and a Piano: LOVE BITES

Two Divas and a Piano: LOVE BITES

Friday, 15 March 2019, 8.00pm

Flo McSweeney, Carmel McCreagh and Fiachra Trench have been delighting audiences with their show “Love Bites”: a cocktail of love songs, jazz standards and ballads, from Cole Porter and Billie Holiday to Joni Mitchell and Tom Waits.

If you enjoy great songs with a dash of style and a sprinkle of humour, you’ll definitely enjoy “Love Bites”.

“It sounds simple — two singers, one pianist and a book of great songs, but what Flo McSweeney, Carmel McCreagh and Fiachra Trench are doing takes a lot of talent, experience and sheer guts. The winning and admirably eclectic programme ranges from Gershwin and Cole Porter to Joni Mitchell and Tom Waits, and each song is ‘owned’ by the vocalists and turned into something authentic and emotional. Behind them, Trench’s sparse accompaniments are what you 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”.

“Songs presented with style and sass by this trio of renowned Irish musicians.”

“Mega congrats for a fantastic night. Marvellous atmosphere…”
– The Whale Theatre, Greystones
