Mary Coughlan is one of Ireland’s greatest female jazz and blues singers, a true artist who has carved out a timeless and highly regarded career and a legion of devoted fans worldwide. Described as “Ireland’s Billie Holiday’, Mary has overcome childhood trauma, alcoholism & drug addiction to become a musical force like no other. “Resonant with the grief of Billie Holiday, the soul of Van Morrison and the defiance of Edith Piaf, to hear Mary sing is to be at the core of the human heart.”


In 2016 she had major heart and lung problems, and almost died. After some amazing surgery and medical care, as Mary puts it: “I waved goodbye to 2016 & started 2017 in top form!” She decided to celebrate with a concert at Dublin’s premier venue, Vicar Street, which was recorded and resulted in her new album, ‘Live & Kicking’. To quote Mary again: “So this CD is Mary LIVE & KICKING one year after almost kicking it!” Don’t miss Mary’s final Sydney show of her Australian ‘Live & Kicking’ CD Launch Tour!


Mary will perform with Irish guitar legend Jimmy Smyth, leading Australian jazz pianist, Matt McMahon, and in-demand double bass player, Brett Hirst. Widely regarded as one of Ireland’s greatest guitarists, Jimmy Smyth’s impressive credentials include serving as musical director for Van Morrison, being nominated for a Grammy Award alongside Toni Childs, and recording and playing with Roger Daltry, Chaka Khan, Van Morrison and Reba McIntyre.
