Mary Gauthier

Tennesse, USA


After 10 groundbreaking albums of original songs, going on two decades of recording and touring around the world, a harvest of music industry awards, and covers of her songs by a roster of great artists – Mary Gauthier’s place among the finest singer-songwriters on the planet is assured. It is said that the master songwriters – the “truth tellers,” as Mary refers to the likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Young, Leonard Cohen and Patti Smith – those writers always put a piece of themselves into every song. With each new album, with each new cycle of songs that illuminate her soul. We are fortunate indeed to be able to spend some time with this truly gifted artist at the festival again.
