Mary Coughlan - Vicar Street
MARY COUGHLAN & BAND
21st January 2018
Ireland’s most foremost jazz & blues female singer and performer returns to Dublin’s premier live music venue Vicar Street on Sunday 21st January 2018.
“Dubbed as Ireland’s Billie Holiday, Mary is a jazz & blues singer whose life story gives weight to the truth that the best singers are the ones with the most painful lives” (The Guardian). Whether into folk, blues or jazz, no one can fail to be moved by the emotional depth, expression & power in her voice, forged from an extraordinary life.
Mary has carved out a timeless and highly regarded career, with a legion of devoted fans worldwide. Her ability to connect so emotionally & empathically with both the song & her audience is testament to her inner strength, and to the power of transformation & redemption. The stage is her home. To hear Mary sing is truly to be at the core of the human heart.
At Mary Coughlan’s Vicar Street show in January, you will be taken on a journey of devastatingly beautiful, wide-ranging and engaging songs, plus plenty humourous wit from a woman who has battled her demons and won.
As the Observer newspaper rightly said, “Mary Coughlan’s talent is awesome.” Come & witness Mary for yourself - one woman, one amazing voice, and the truth. “The emotional purity in Mary Coughlan’s songs is so fragile that it is possible to become inconsolable when listening to her in a darkened room.”
Q Magazine - “A song is not complete unless it has been sung by Mary Coughlan.”
The London Times - “Mary’s live performances have to be seen to be believed.”
