Singer-songwriter, Mary Gauthier

February 27th, 2018 – 4-5 PM – Room G-20

We are happy to offer this special session with acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier.  Gauthier will discuss her latest collection of songs, Rifles and Rosary Beads and her songs such as “Mercy Now,” which, like Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” has become embraced popularly as a secular hymn.  Free and open to the public.

 “To be affected by these songs, you don’t have to know anything of Gauthier’s backstory (Louisiana orphan addict chef turned sober troubadour), the respect she commands across gender lines in the Americana scene, or the heavyweight catalog she’s built out of unflinching introspection and Southern Gothic-shaded storytelling.”   NPR Music

“…Louisiana-raised Mary Gauthier has become one of Americana music’s most admired artists-across the U.S. and around the world.”   Wall Street Journal
