Mary played a sell out show for us two years ago and we’re looking forward to seeing
“From the sultry heat of songs like I Want to Be Seduced or Just a Friend of Mine,
to the burning emotion of Magdalen Laundry by way of the searing I Would Rather Go
Blind, Mary’s voice was a blaze of glory.
It was like going to a concert peopled by the ghosts of the great singers of the
last century, with new life breathed into their songs by one of the most powerful
and yet versatile and controlled voices around. Drawing on Billie Holliday, Etta
James, Elvis Presley, through to Kirsty McColl and Joy Division, Mary gave a master
class in song interpretation.” - Debbie Neech, The Gazette July 2013.
