Mary Coughlan and her band are bringing her new show – Live & Kicking for an up close & personal performance @ the Hot Spot. This new tour is a celebration of Mary’s 30 plus years in the music business. Mary Coughlan’s music career has been a roller coaster and one hell of a ride, and this concert will reflect that, featuring all the songs that are close to Mary’s heart and life.
Mary seemingly timeless and endless talent, her smoky, bluesy, boozy drawl have always been a seduction, no matter what the subject. The vocal marrying of sardonic wit, visceral rage, orgiastic between the sheets passion, the tenderest of sorrowful regrets; this is Mary’s talent. Regardless of the elements she chooses to manipulate with flawless ease, Mary’s voice has always been an unforeseen, sudden seduction. This is why she is so loved. Throughout the over 30 years of her quite 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, with her naked honesty makes every song her own; they belong to her and nobody else.
Tickets *€20 – €22 *First 20 tickets are €20. Doors open 8pm
