Artist: Katherine Wheatley, Album: Habits And Heroes, Song: Mrs. McIvor

"I hear the neighbours complain.  I hear them hissing, Mrs. McIvor's insane.  There never were pests here before.  Now the boys play nikki nikki nine door."  Katherine Wheatley is a singer songwriter from Parry Sound, Ontario.  She released her debut in 1995 and to date has three albums.  Her most recent was released in 2009.  Habits and Heroes was her second release in 1999 and includes the wonderful song, Mrs. McIvor.  Katherine is a wonderful songwriter and on this particular track, she draws the listener in as though they were reading a story themselves about the plight of the misunderstood Mrs. McIvor.  A wonderful talent who continues to play festivals and clubs throughout the province.  Most recently, she appears to be playing with former Bird Sisters, Jude Vadala and Tannis Slimmon.  You can follow Katherine at  You can purchase the album, Habits and Heroes, on Itunes.  You can hear the song, Mrs. McIvor, on You Tube (  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
