Mary Gauthier with special guest Jaimee Harris
July 12 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
“With songwriting as powerful as hers, there’s no need to go looking for qualifiers. She’s a unique, intrinsically valuable musical voice. And there’s never a surplus of those.” – Randy Lewis, Los Angeles Times
“Mary’s songwriting speaks to the tender aspects of our humanness. We need her voice in times like these more than we ever have.” – Brandi Carlisle
“one of the best songwriters of her generation” – Associated Press
As she has so eloquently accomplished over the past 25 years, acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier has used her art once again to traverse the uncharted waters of the past few years. Her eleventh album, the first record in over 8 years consisting of all her own songs, Dark Enough to See the Stars, follows the profound antidote to trauma, Rifles & Rosary Beads, her 2018 collaborative work with wounded Iraq war veterans. It garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album, as well as a nomination for Album of the Year by the Americana Music Association. Publication of her first book, the illuminating Saved by a Song: The Art and Healing Power of Songwriting, in 2021, amplified the specific yet relatable world view that makes her work beloved.
Mary’s songs have been recorded by dozens of artists, including Jimmy Buffett, Dolly Parton, Boy George, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Bettye Lavette, Mike Farris, Kathy Mattea, Bobby Bare, Amy Helm and Candi Staton and have appeared extensively in Film and Television, most recently on HBO TV’s Yellowstone.
Mary Gauthier will be joined by special guest Jaimee Harris. No Depression wrote of her latest release: “Harris’ emotionally expansive vocals ring with a crystal clarity and pull from her cinematic songwriting a poignant core of feeling that reverberates with every note.”
