An Evening, in Phoenicia, with Mary Gauthier; Saturday May 6, 2017


Mary Gauthier has become one of Americana music’s most admired artists—across the U.S. and in her regular tours around the world.” – The Wall Street Journal

“…her razor-sharp eye for detail and her commitment to unsentimental self-reflection puts her in a class with greats such as Kris Kristofferson, John Prine and yes, Bob Dylan.” – The Los Angeles Times

What do Alabama Shakes, Mumford & Sons, and Mary Gauthier have in common? They are all prior winners of the Americana Music Association’s New/Emerging Artist of the Year award. Mary took home that award in 2005.

The Associated Press calls Mary Gauthier one of the best songwriters of her generation. Drag Queens in Limousines, off of Gauthier’s second CD of the same name, won best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Song at the first Annual Independent Music Awards in 1999. Her third album, 2002’s Filth and Fire, was named #1 Best Independent CD of the year by Jon Pareles of the New York Times.  Her 2005 release, Mercy Now, was named in the top five records of the decade by No Depression magazine. 

Her most recent release, Trouble And Love, was included in  Rolling Stone’s feature “The 26 Albums of 2014 You Probably Didn’t But Really Should Hear, where they said of it:

“Every tune is a rough gem of melody, misery and economy, as Gauthier excavates romantic wreckage like an archaeologist telling the story of a fossilized love.”

Mary Gauthier put it well when she once said, “There’s no such thing as going too deep.” Mary will be accompanied for this show on fiddle by Michele Gazich, an Italian violinist of renown who has performed on over 50 albums, playing with artists such as Eric Andersen, Tom Russell, John Hammond, Victoria Williams, Michelle Shocked, Mark Olson, and of course; Mary Gauthier.
