Mary Coughlan sings Blues from the Heart

Uncompromising singer Mary Coughlan comes to The Met on Saturday 12 October at 8pm.

.

Mary Coughlan is one of Ireland’s most well-known singers, over twenty-five years and ten albums, she has made the most grown-up, personal and universal music on either side of the Atlantic about what goes on between men and women.

 

She is unique in blending the whiskey-blurred, smoke-seared husky notes of Billy holiday and Peggy Lee and the line of down and dirty blues singers back to Memphis Minnie and Bessie Smith with the bitter-sweet defiance of Piaf. Her first album, Tired and Emotional sold 100,000 copies in Ireland alone and its successor, Under the Influence, confirmed Coughlan as a singer capable of making every song she sings her own.

 

Mary’s 2012 album, The Whole Affair, is a compilation CD that spans twelve albums and new live recordings that showcase her magnificent voice better than ever.

 

Tickets for the performance are £17.50. For more information or to book phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
