MARY COUGHLAN, Ireland’s greatest jazz and blues singer plays The Crane Bar this Saturday at 6.30pm as part of the Sea Road venue’s annual Singers and their Songs gigs.
Coughlan’s brilliance was summed up The Financial Times when it said: “Coughlan writes few of her own songs, but her choices and the way she inhabits them turn them alchemically into autobiography...she is an unlikely but transfixing performer, whether standing on one leg on a vertiginous high heel or kicking off her shoes...to whisper, growl, cry out loud and occasionally lean against a monitor to listen appreciatively to her showband as they vamped out. No one should wish her heartbreak, but everyone should envy her power to transform it.”
Support is from Karrie. For more information and tickets contact The Crane on 091 - 587419 or see www.thecranebar.com
