Judy belts out a tune
Singer Judy Coughlin
has over a long career entertained many thousands of jazz, blues, soul and reggae fans. Judy still makes her home in Central Virginia, where she regularly performs.

A well-rounded singer, blues singing (via realaudio or .wav file 460k) is one of Judy's strongest abilities. She was once described (in a review available elsewhere on this site) thusly:

"Judy Coughlin, a sultry, wavy-haired brunette from the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, moans and wails on the bluesier numbers and handles the upbeat tunes with aplomb. Her husky-grained vocals recall Bessie Smith.

Judy is captured here at Charlottesville's C&O Club by photographer John Stubblefield.
