Meet me where they play the blues

Mary Coughlan at Ronnie Scott's Thursday 14-Oct-10

I have seen Mary Coughlan once before when my Mary was working in Dublin. She appeared at The Olympia Theatre performing a set of Billie Holliday songs - there being many parallels between their two lives. 

Ronnie Scott's is an altogether different kind of venue. There was only a couple of small tables between us and the stage. It really is an intimate venue. That's why the photo of the empty stage. They request no photos and we were so close it would have been kind of obvious. 

Afterwards Mary bought the latest CD and MC's biography both of which she signed. Helped by good food and company it was a great evening.
