Artists and Writers at Work: Honor Finnegan
This episode features an interview with Honor Finnegan, the Susan Boyle of quirky indie folk, only hotter. Her songs are humorous then heartbreaking with melodies that soar. Based in New York City, she has been making a splash in the northeastern regional folk scene with her original songs and ukulele playing. Honor’s CD, The Tiny Life, was #9 on the Folk DJ charts for February 2012, receiving airplay at such notable stations as WFMT (Chicago), WFUV (New York), WXPN (Philadelphia), and WUMB (Boston). Honor was selected as a 2013 Kerrville New Folk Finalist, a 2012 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist, and a 2012 NERFA Formal Showcase winner. Her song, “Stark as Stone” is featured on Amy Speace’s new CD. Honor will be at the NY Uke Fest 2013 on May 31st, and at First Acoustics for Joni Mitchell‘s Blue: A 40th Anniversary Celebration on June 1st.
