Mary Coughlan

Mary Coughlan is one of our greatest female singers. At over ten albums she’s made the most mature, uncompromising, wholly personal and utterly universal music. She has taken the classic standards of jazz balladry and the recent gems of rock and Irish songwriting, shaken them and offered them up new, like jewels dripping from the deep, strewn on black velvet. Throughout Mary’s quite extraordinary recording career she has drawn from her legendary heroes: Billie Holiday’s grievous, teary outpourings, the husky…

Dr Claire Nally (Northumbria University) 4 May 2017 7.30pm Free The Women of Revolution When we think of the 1916 Rising, we might initially think of Yeats's 'sixteen dead men', who are rightly valorised in the nationalist canon of heroes.
