PERFORMANCE: Mary Coughlan and Band
|Mary Coughlan and Band : Celebrate St Patrick's day with the world-famous Irish singer.
Mary Coughlan’s smoky, bluesy, boozy drawl has always been a seduction, no matter what the subject. The vocal marrying of sardonic wit, visceral rage, between-the-sheets passion and the tenderest of sorrowful regrets – this is Mary’s talent.
This is why she is so loved.
Throughout the 25 years of her extraordinary recording career Mary has drawn heavily from her legendary heroes; Billie Holiday’s grievous, teary outpourings, the husky flirtations of Peggy Lee, Van Morrison’s soulful wails, the defiant chanteusery of Edith Piaf. All are present and correct in her delivery. Even so, Mary makes every song her own: they belong to her and nobody else.
Don’t miss a rare opportunity to see a singer at the very height of her powers, for one night only in Perth.
