Mary Coughlan & Band - Live & Kicking

Thursday, 14 September 2017, 8.00pm

Main Auditorium // €22.50 / €20 conc

Mary Coughlan’s 30 plus years in the music business has been a rollercoaster hell of a ride and this concert will reflect that, featuring all the songs that are close to Mary’s heart and life. Often described as the greatest female vocalist and interpreter of songs that Ireland has ever produced, she proudly stands alongside the iconic giants of jazz on both sides of the Atlantic, Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf. Mary is the only singer these shores have produced to rival the greatest of European cabaret and American jazz club blues because of one thing: her unique voice. Her whisky-blurred, smoke-seared, husky voice delivers songs in a delicious and unapologetic Irish drawl, sceptical, rueful, mournful and melting, ardent for love. This much loved voice easily wraps itself around Cole Porter and Jerome Kern, Elvis Presley and Joy Division to name but a few.
