What’s on at The Purty Loft

Friday 25th August - The Whistling Girl ~ SupperClub

The Whistling Girl – The acclaimed Irish duo of jazz singer and actress Honor Heffernan and composer/ keyboard player Trevor Knight proudly present their new Cabaret/Speakeasy-style show “The Whistling Girl”, featuring musical settings of the poetry of the great American wit, civil rights activist and author Dorothy Parker.
Expect to encounter an evening with a darkly sardonic and theatrical atmosphere in which Parker’s droll and sometimes heart-rending lyrics are transported into the 21st century  by way of a soundtrack of ‘dirty’-cabaret, electronic-vaudeville, rock and jazz, as Heffernan channels the spirit of Parker during her years of notoriety in New York.
Parker’s work as a civil rights activist and supporter of Martin Luther King along with her writings about her experiences in Spain during the Spanish Civil War also form an integral part of the show’s narrative.

  • Reviews

    “Parker’s misanthropic verse is phrased in deliciously acidic terms and in disarming musical settings…”

    “It’s easy to picture Mrs Parker viewing this show with both a hiked eyebrow and a wry smile”

    (Irish Times)

    “…clever….imaginative….inventive…. echoes of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil,  flourishes of The Doors, a touch of Kraftwerk here, and Leonard Cohen there”.

    (Jackie Hayden of Hot Press)

The Show Must Go On. Since the sad passing of Freddie Mercury in 1991, Flash Harry have been living that sentiment. They have been celebrating the music of Queen for more than 23 years and still their fans come to join the homage to the greatest rock band of them all. Hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland, the top home venues played and sold out by this act speaks volumes for the quality and sheer entertainment value of the show. The list includes Belfast’s Grand Opera House and The Waterfront Hall, Dublin’s Point Depot (now the O2), London’s Royal Albert Hall and most notably 3 sell out shows at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast with their ‘The Magic of Queen Rocked Up and Classical’ show, featuring the band, the Ulster Orchestra and a 50 strong college choir.

Saturday 9th September - Lioness - The Amy Winehouse Experience ~ SupperClub

Lioness 2 150x150

In her short career, the talent of Amy Winehouse created a lasting impression on the music world of the 21st century. Recording three critically acclaimed albums from her debut ‘Frank’ in 2003, the Grammy Award-winning ‘Back to Black’ in 2006 and the posthumous ‘Lioness’ in 2011 along with the covers of ‘Cupid’ and ‘Valerie’ with Producer Mark Ronson no one can deny the talent and impact of this often misunderstood star.

  • read more
  •  

    Lioness provides an authentic tribute to the precocious talent featuring TV’s ‘Stars in The Eyes’ finalist Emma Wright as Amy Winehouse plus a full five-piece backing band to recreate the authentic sound of this heady mix of jazz, soul and pop. With a full stage show showcasing the talent of this songstress will take you on a journey through the emotional roller coaster of her songwriting, guaranteed to have you singing and dancing along throughout the performance.

    The band are made up of hand-picked experienced musicians, carefully selected to maintain the accuracy to the original performances of the UK’s brightest star that so tragically burned out in 2011. The crafted show focuses on the vocal talent and soul of Amy, unhindered by the dark side to her addictions to alcohol and substances. Lioness is, without a doubt, the best of Amy Winehouse designed to entertain and deliver the experience of Amy at her best.
