Mary Gauthier is one of the most important and acclaimed songwriters in the world. The author of portfolio of extraordinary confessional songs, deeply personal, profoundly emotional pieces ranging from I Drink, a blunt accounting of addiction, to March 11, 1962, the day she was born and relinquished to an orphanage to Worthy, in which the singer finally understands she is deserving of love.
Her last record, Rifles and Rosary Beads, was described by Rolling Stone as Not only one of the most arresting American singer-songwriter records in recent years, but one of the most vital pieces of art to come out of two wars and according to LA Times "You'll be hard-pressed to hear a more powerfully moving work than Rifles & Rosary Beads - this year, or any other."
Rifles & Rosary Beads was named Best Album of The Year at International Folk Music Awards, and Mary is the Americana Association UK International Artist of the Year .
Opening act Jaimee Harris is described as playing Real Americana Music from Austin Texas and she's poised to become the next queen of Americana-Folk, a slightly edgier Emmylou Harris for the younger generation,
American singer/songwriter with a sound like a cross between Lucinda Williams & John Prine, singing wonderful, funny, heartbreaking songs in the alt.country vein. Her beautifully crafted, earthy vocals sit perfectly atop classic wandering guitars, making her one of country's finest, strongest and most revered artists.
