Louisiana native Mary Gauthier (it's French; pronounced Go-SHAY), has earned praise from Bob Dylan and Tom Waits, and been recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Blake Shelton and many others. She is a practical, no-nonsense woman who was once a teen runaway, later earned a college degree in philosophy, and operated a Cajun restaurant in Boston. Her songs carry so much emotional punch they can leave you staggering. She has a way of burrowing into that hole so many of us carry inside our souls, and emerging with universal truths that show we aren't so alone after all. Her six albums have received countless accolades: 2005's Mercy Now earned her the Americana Music Association's New/Emerging Artist of the Year title, and 2011's The Foundling was named the No. 3 Record of the Year but the L.A. Times. Her latest is Live at the Blue Rock, her first live album and a milestone that her fans have long hungered for.
Winnepeg songwriter and guitarist Scott Nolan and percussionist Joanna Miller wil open the show and accompany Mary throughout her set. Nolan's songs are the right stuff for "people with a past," based in the melodies and rhythms of rock and roll and Americana.
